The Super Visa is a family stream which allows both Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents to sponsor their parents and their grandparents. This visa is granted to thousands of people each year and with the aid of a legal expert you may be next.

Usually under a Visitor Visa, an individual is allowed to stay in Canada for 6 months, however under the Super Visa, parents and grandparents that are being sponsored are able to obtain long term visitor status in Canada.

This allows those that are qualified to enjoy many of the great benefits the country has to offer. But, is a rather complicated process that would require the guidance of a immigration professional.

An applicant is able to stay in the country for a period of 2 years at a time without having to renew. Parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents are also able to renew the visa for up to 10 years with multiple entry.

The criteria set by the government of Canada is very strict in regards to such a visa and those whom apply stand the possibility of having their visa denied if any vital detail is missed or overlooked.

Who is a Super Visa for?

The Super Visa in Canada is for foreign parents and grandparents of a Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents. For individuals who generally would have to apply for a Temporary Resident Visa, the Super Visa is a great alternative.

Parents and grandparents under the Super Visa benefit from not having to jump through the hoops of applying for a temporary resident visa, instead with the Super Visa they are able to fly in and out of their home country and Canada as much as they would like  for the duration of the visa.

It should also be noted however, that literally thousands of applicants try for this visa each and every year making it one of the most sought after in the country with a limited acceptance. Those that retain the counsel of a experience immigration professional have a greater provability of successfully obtaining the visa.

What to ask a licensed Canadian immigration professional when you are ready to apply for a Super Visa

Not all immigration law firms have the same amount of background for successfully submitting applications. Often we’ve noticed that Super Visa applications are rejected because the right questions were not discussed.

Here are some very important questions you want to ask any person you are planning on hiring to help you with your Super Visa application:

  • What are the supporting documents required for a SuperVisa in Canada?
  • What are the requirements for an insurance policy and who can I get one from?
  • What is the difference from traditional family sponsorship and the Super Visa for parents & grandparents?

The immigration professional should have no problems answering these important questions for you.
