Parents and Grandparents Super Visa

The laws of Canada that govern immigration make it a main priority to ensure that families are united. A great way to bring Parents and Grandparents to Canada is through the Super Visa program.


The Super Visa is a long-duration tourist visa specially designed for parents and grandparents and as such people who are on this visa are not entitled to work, or study (unless it is a short-term course) or access any of the social benefit systems. It does allow for the family to be together and to be with their children and grandchildren while being part of the household here in Canada.

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.  A Super Visa is valid for 2 years and can be renewed.

To be eligible for a Super Visa:

  • The sponsor must meet the minimum necessary income requirement and provide the most recent Canadian tax return (Notice of assessment) where line 150 meets or exceeds this amount.

  • Purchase Canadian healthcare insurance of $100,000 coverage for at least 1 year- check the cost for insurance (approximately $2,000 - $3,000 CAD per year).

  • Complete a medical examination

  • A written commitment of financial support from the Sponsor (child or grandchild) must be provided

Depending on the citizenship of the sponsored person, a Temporary Resident Visa may be required.
