Parents and Grandparents Program in Canada

Super Visa Program

for the Family Sponsorship

Super Visa Program is an immigration program that allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents to be with them for up to 5 years in Canada. Moreover, it offers applicants multiple entries to Canada for up to 10 years.

Here are the following eligibility criteria that you need to take note of to know to be eligible to visit your child or grandchild in Canada through the super visa program:

  • Received a signed letter from your child or grandchild who invited you. Their letter must include the following:
      • A promise that they will support you financially throughout your stay in Canada
      • List the number of people staying in their household
      • Copy of the document that will prove that they are a citizen or a permanent resident in Canada
  • Provide proof of relationship with your child or grandchild with the following copies of their:
      • Birth certificate
      • Baptismal certificate
      • A document that will demonstrate that you are their parent or grandparent
  • Apply for the Super Visa while you are outside Canada and print your visa outside Canada
  • Allowed to enter Canada
  • Take a medical examination for immigration purposes

However, the government of Canada also needs to check if you are a genuine visitor who will leave the country once the purpose of your visit is done. Thus, Canada will check your:

  • Ties to your country of citizenship
  • Purpose of visit
  • Family and Finances
  • Country of citizenship’s economic and political stability

Meanwhile, your child or grandchild must also meet the following criteria for you to be eligible to visit them in Canada. They must be:

  • A citizen or a permanent resident of Canada
  • Financially capable to meet the required minimum necessary income to support you financially throughout your stay in Canada


Family Reunification

Super Visa allows families to be reunited again with this program. Parents and grandparents can visit their family in Canada and stay with them for up to 5 years.

Multiple Entries in Canada

Super Visa offers multiple entries in Canada for up to 10 years.

Processing Time

Your Super Visa application will take around 100 days before being processed, depending on your country of residence.

No More Visa Extension

Unlike when you visit your family through a Canadian visitor visa, the validity of your visit is only a maximum of 6 months. With that, you have to extend your visa and pay an additional fee if you want to extend it. However, with Super Visa, you can stay for a maximum of 5 years with your family.
