A great way to bring Parents and Grandparents to Canada is through the Super Visa program. This program allows family members to come to Canada as long-term visitors on a multiple entry visa that may last up to 10 years. The Super Visa allows guardians and grandparents of Canadian citizenship holders and permanent residents to come to Canada as guests for up to five continuous years (effective July 4, 2022) on their first visit without renewing their status.
This is an ideal option for Canadian Citizens and Canadian Permanent Residents who are waiting to sponsor their parents for PR, or who currently do not qualify for Parental PR sponsorship.
Effective July 4, 2022, the Super Visa will allow eligible parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents to visit their family in Canada for as long as five years without reestablishing their status. Those with a Super Visa as of now can likewise apply for an extension that might empower them to stay in Canada as a guest for as long as 7 years. The Super Visa permits parents and grandparents to enter Canada on various occasions for as long as 10 years. Prior to July 4, 2022, the Super Visa strategy was to permit sections into Canada as long as 2 years.
The Super Visa is great for parents and grandparents living in nations requiring a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to enter Canada. By getting the Super Visa, they will be able to travel uninhibitedly between Canada and their nation of home without the concern and bother of consistently re-applying for a TRV.
The people who don’t need a TRV to enter Canada, may likewise apply using a similar application process. Rather than being given a visa, in any case, they will be given an authority letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that will approve their visit for as long as five years at their intial entry, which is extendable up to 7 years.
Parents or grandparents of Canadian residents and Permanent Residents might be qualified to apply for the Super Visa. The applicants can’t be forbidden to Canada based on wellbeing or security, and they might be required to meet explicit conditions set out by the visa office through which they will apply.
It is essential to take note that no dependents can be included in this application. Just parents or grandparents, along with their mates or common-law partners, might be remembered for an application for the Super Visa.
