Super Visa

The Super Visa program is a heartwarming initiative by the Canadian government, opening doors for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents to create lasting memories with their families. At Sponsor Family Canada, we understand the importance of family bonds, and our Super Visa service is crafted to ensure a seamless and extended stay, fostering cherished moments with your loved ones.

What is the Super Visa Program?

The Super Visa program is a special provision allowing parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents to visit their family in Canada for up to five years at a time. Unlike standard visitor visas, this multiple-entry visa offers the significant advantage of an extended stay upon initial entry into the country.

Who is Eligible for the Super Visa?

Eligibility for the Super Visa program is extended to parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents. However, there is a key stipulation – applicants must apply from outside Canada. This program has been a blessing for families, providing an opportunity for prolonged bonding without the hassle of frequent visa renewals. For more official information, please feel free to check out the official webiste.

Who is Not Eligible?

While the Super Visa welcomes parents and grandparents, individuals who wish to apply for it must do so from outside Canada. This means that individuals currently in Canada cannot transition to a Super Visa status from within the country.

Financial Requirements for Super Visa

Unlike immigration processes (spousal, child/children and parents/grandparents sponsorship) the Super Visa program does not impose specific financial requirements. However, sponsors are expected to provide a letter promising financial support for the visiting parents or grandparents during their stay in Canada. Additionally, sponsors must meet the minimum income requirements set by the Canadian government.

Super Visa is the Path to Permanent Residency

While the Super Visa is a temporary provision, it serves as a stepping stone toward Canadian Permanent Residency (PR). Parents or grandparents already in Canada on a Super Visa can explore options to apply for PR, enabling them to permanently reside in the country.


  • Longer Stay: Enjoy an extended stay in Canada for up to five years at a time, far surpassing the typical six-month limit of regular visitor visas.
  • Multiple Entry: Super Visa holders have the flexibility to enter and exit Canada multiple times during the validity of their visa, making family visits more convenient.
  • Explore Canada: Super Visa holders can live, travel, and explore the country for up to five years per entry without the need for renewal. Immerse yourself in Canada’s natural beauty, experience its vibrant culture, and participate in family events and occasions.

However, it’s important to note that Super Visa holders are not permitted to work in Canada.
