Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents

Super-Visa-For-Parents Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents

Parents and grandparents are one of the greatest blessings in life. Wouldn’t it be nice if they can visit you in Canada and see all that you have achieved? They can see the beautiful life you have built for yourself and meet your family and friends here in Canada. Give them a chance to visit and tour this picturesque country and spend quality time with you. The Canadian government believes in family and community reunification and assists those eligible to unify through the Super Visa. The Super Visa legislation was introduced in 2011 and has allowed thousands of parents and grandparents from across the world to visit their children and/or grandchildren in Canada for extended periods of time.

This legislation has been a great success across Canada in reuniting families, strengthening social, economic and community ties and providing our elderly loved ones a chance to visit Canada. As Canada encourages this family reunification, the Super Visa is one of the most straightforward applications with very high reward. At Akrami and Associates, we are proud to say that we have taken part in and provided excellent support in reuniting many families.

Super Visa Eligibility for Parent and Grandparents

AM I ELIGIBLE FOR A SUPER VISA?

Are you a permanent resident or Canadian citizen? Do you wish your parents or grandparents could come and visit you for long periods of time? Are you confused about what a super visa is? Family is one of our main priorities at all times, and not having them in Canada can be tough. This blog will answer all of your inquiries about Canadian super visas.

What is a super visa in Canada?

Like a regular visitor’s visa, a super visa is a travel document that allows you to travel to Canada. It lets the immigration officer know that you are fully eligible to enter the country. A super visa varies in the sense that even though it is still a multiple entry visa (meaning that you are allowed to enter and exit Canada as many times as you want as long as the visa is valid), but the only difference is that the maximum period that an individual can stay in Canada for is 2 years. A super visa is usually valid for about 10 years.

Super Visa

At Akrami & Associates understand the beauty of having someone around you who once took care of you. The feeling is unmatchable! Life is more enjoyable when it is spent with the people who mean the most to you, and when you are separated by thousands of kilometers it can seem almost impossible to include them in your life. That is the reason why at Akrami&Associates we do our very best to help our clients achieve success at bringing their parents and grandparents into Canada. Keep in mind that the process of bringing your parents and grandparents into Canada can be difficult but every step along the way is important and requires an intense amount of attention.

What is a Super Visa

A Super Visa is essentially a Visitor’s Visa which is granted only to the parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The Super Visa can have a validity of up to 10 years. Once the visa is granted to the individual, they are given a maximum amount of time that they can stay inside of Canada per visit.

Application Tips for Super Visa

The Super Visa application is a great alternative for Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada who would like to reunite with their parents or grandparents for longer than six months in Canada. In the past, the only option was the parent-grandparent sponsorship; however, now individuals can choose to apply for the super visa. For the super visa application, it is very important to understand and recognize the requirements from the sponsor as well as from the applicant. Therefore, in this article, I will address some useful and beneficial application tips when applying for a Super Visa to Canada.

Eligibility Requirements for Super Visa

If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada, then you are on the right track to being eligible to apply for the Super Visa for your parent or grandparent. In addition, you must also meet the minimum low income cut off. It is important to note that the minimum necessary income is determined and based on your current family size and the amount of individuals you intend on sponsoring to Canada. The amount of individuals will be either one or two – i.e. your parent or grandparent and their spouse or common-law partner. Keep in mind, for this specific type of Immigration application, dependents are not allowed to apply. In other words, any dependent child of the parent or grandparent would not be eligible to apply and, thus, cannot be included in the application for Super Visa.
