Super Visa

A Super Visa lets you visit your children or grandchildren for up to 5 years at a time. It’s a visa that provides multiple entries for a period of up to 10 years.

To be eligible for a Super visa, you must –

  • be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada
  • have a “Letter of Invitation” from your child or grandchild that includes a promise of financial support for the length of your visit, the list and number of people in the household of this person, and a copy of your child or grandchild’s Canadian citizenship or permanent resident document
  • have proof of payment for medical insurance from a Canadian Insurance company that is valid for at least 1 year from the date of entry, and of at least CAD 100,000 coverage
  • have proof that your child or grandchild’s household meets the minimum necessary income
  • provide a document confirming that you had an immigration medical exam

You must also –

  • apply for a super visa from outside Canada
  • have your visa printed outside of Canada
  • be allowed to enter Canada
  • meet certain other conditions

The following factors will also determine whether you are granted a visa:

  • 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

You cannot include dependents in this application.

If you want to stay for 6 months or less, apply for a visitor visa.
