Super Visa

The Super Visa is a multiple-entry temporary resident visa (TRV), issued with a validity of up to 10 years. The period of authorized stay is 5 years for each entry. 

Only biological or adopted children may invite their parents or grandparents. They may also invite the spouse or common-law partner of their parent or grandparent. A spouse or common-law partner of the host may co-sign the letter of invitation. The co-signer may provide proof of income, to be combined with the host’s income, in order to demonstrate that the minimum necessary income is met or exceeded.

This is an ideal option for Canadian Citizens and Canadian Permanent Residents who are waiting to sponsor their parents for PR, or who currently do not qualify for Parental PR sponsorship.
