Since the programs launch in December 2011, more than 20,000 Parent and Grandparent Super Visas have been issued. With a high approval rate of 85%, over 1,000 Super Visas are being issued monthly, becoming one of Canada’s most popular immigration programs. Should you wish to be in on this trend, please speak with one of our immigration lawyers in Vancouver.
The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa allows for multiple entries, is valid for up to 10 years, and allows for holders to stay in Canada for up to two years at a time. Thus, eliminating the need to reapply every visit.
Applicants for the Super Visa must provide proof that the host child or grandchild meets a minimum income level, demonstrate that they have purchased comprehensive Canadian medical insurance and undergo the immigration medical examination. To date, almost 99 % of Super Visa applicants who met these requirements were approved.
