Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents

Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents

Parental Sponsorship was closed by Citizenship and Immigration of Canada (CIC) for the time being but now it has been re-opened in 2014. However, there is a cap on this Parental Sponsorship program of five thousand completed applications. This means that once this number of applications is reached, the program will close until the following year. So if you want to sponsor your parents or grandparents, you should do as soon as possible as the cap opens.

If you didn’t make it in time to sponsor, you can also apply for the Super Visa.

The Super Visa is a kind of Temporary Resident Visa. When Parental Sponsorship program was closed, Citizenship and Immigration Canada started the Super Visa for Canadian citizens and permanent residents who wish to be able to invite their parents and grandparents.

The Super Visa is only for parents and grandparents and can be valid for up to ten years. Once parents and grandparents receive their Super Visa, they can live in Canada for ten years but they have to renew visa every three.

In order to apply for your parents and grandparents Super Visa, you have to meet certain requirements and these are following:

  • Your child or grandchild has to be Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
  • Cannot be inadmissible to Canada
  • You have to provide a letter which proves that your child or grandchild will financially support you
  • You have to provide Canadian medical insurance coverage for at least one year
  • You have to provide valid immigration medical exam
  • You also have to prove that your child or grandchild meet the requirements of minimum income threshold

Those are the basic requirements for Super Visa. In addition to this, you will need to prove that your stay in Canada is temporary in nature and that you will exit Canada upon the expiry of your authorized period of stay.
