Super Visa Requirements

Posted in Super Visa

Super Visa

The Super Visa came into effect in December of 2011. Eligible applicants may receive a visa that is valid for up to 10 years and will let you visit your family in Canada for up to two years without renewing your status.

The Super Visa will allow applicants to remain in Canada for up to 24 months at a time without having to renew their status.

In order to qualify as the applicant, you must:

  • Be a parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
  • Provide a written commitment of financial support from their child or grandchild in Canada, including proof that the child or grandchild meets the minimum necessary income (Low Income Cut-Off)
  • Undergo the Immigration Medical Examination
  • Submit proof that they have purchased comprehensive Canadian medical insurance, valid for at least one year
  • Satisfy the visa officer that they meet all other standard admissibility criteria

The other standards of admissibility criteria that you will have to meet are:

  • your ties to your home country,
  • the purpose of your visit,
  • your family and finances,
  • the overall economic and political stability of your home country,
  • an invitation from a Canadian host.

In addition to the above, you will also need to include proof that you have private medical insurance valid for a minimum of one year from a Canadian insurance company and that:

  • covers health care, hospitalization and repatriation,
  • provides a minimum coverage of $100 000, and
  • is valid for each entry to Canada and be available for review by a port of entry officer.

An application for a Super Visa is basically a two tiered effort between you, as the applicant, and the child inviting you to Canada. They will have to provide you some of this documentation while you prepare the remaining documents yourself.

Temporary resident visas such as the Super Visa category are easier said than done. Aside from satisfying an officer that you meet the basic requirements, the applicant will also need to demonstrate ties to their home country. Many of our clients have come to us seeking help in this regard.

Further, the person inviting you will also need to meet a minimum necessary income respective to their family size and amount of people they intend to invite.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
