Super Visa for Canada’s Parents and Grandparents Program

A super visa allows you to visit your children or grandchildren for up to 5 years. It is a visa that allows multiple entries for a period of up to ten years. A super visa has specific requirements, including the need for health insurance. To be eligible, you must meet all of the requirements.

Super Visa holders are allowed to stay in Canada for a maximum of two years during that time. On the other hand, a regular visa for visitors typically has a maximum validity of six months.

Citizens of countries exempt from visa requirements may still find the Super Visa program beneficial. Normally, visitors from visa-exempt nations are allowed entry into Canada for six months without the need for a visitor’s visa.
