Parent and Grandparent Super Visas


Parent and Grandparent Super Visas

The Super Visa is a visa that allows for the holder to come to Canada for long-term visits. Applicants who are successful will receive multiple-entry visitor visas that may last for up to 10 years.

Those who are eligible for a Super Visa must meet a few requirements:

This letter must include: the promise of financial support during their stay in Canada, a detailed list of the people in the household of the child or grandchild, a copy of the child or grandchild’s Canadian citizenship or permanent resident document.
  • Be able to provide proof of medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company. The issue must be: valid for at least one year from the date of entry into the country, at least $100,000 for minimum coverage
  • Provide proof that the medical insurance has been paid
  • Must be allowed to enter Canada (must have no restrictions on entry)
  • Take an immigration medical exam
