Super Visa

The Super Visa is a specialized program offered by Canada’s immigration system, designed to facilitate extended visits for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Unlike a regular Visitor Visa, the Super Visa grants eligible applicants the ability to stay in Canada for up to two years on each entry, and the visa itself can be valid for up to 10 years. This allows parents and grandparents to spend more time with their loved ones in Canada without the need for frequent visa renewals. To qualify for the Super Visa, applicants must meet specific requirements, including a written invitation from their Canadian child or grandchild, proof of sufficient financial support from their host, private medical insurance coverage, and a medical examination to ensure they meet the health standards. The Super Visa serves as a popular pathway for family reunification, fostering stronger ties between generations and providing opportunities for shared experiences in Canada’s welcoming environment.


To apply for a Super Visa in Canada, applicants must meet the following requirements:

  1. Relationship: You must be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident in Canada.

  2. Invitation Letter: A written invitation from your child or grandchild in Canada is required, stating their commitment to financially support you during your stay.

  3. Financial Proof: You must provide evidence that your child or grandchild meets the minimum income threshold set by the Canadian government to support you financially.

  4. Medical Insurance: You must have private medical insurance coverage from a Canadian insurance company that is valid for at least one year and provides a minimum coverage amount.

  5. Medical Exam: Applicants must undergo a medical examination from an approved panel physician to show they are in good health.

  6. Immigration Medical Insurance: You need to show proof that you have purchased one year of private medical insurance coverage for yourself.

  7. Application Fee: Pay the necessary processing fees, which are non-refundable, regardless of the outcome of the application.

Meeting these requirements increases your chances of obtaining a Super Visa, allowing you to stay in Canada for extended periods and enjoy valuable time with your family members.
