Major reforms affecting Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents

Super Visa is a multi-entry visa designed for Parents and Grandparents, enabling them to stay in Canada longer than other types of visitor visas. The Super Visa is valid for ten years or until the applicant’s passport expires. Currently, Super Visa holders are allowed to stay in Canada for up to two years per entry. In order to apply for a Super Visa, the applicant must be medically insured by a Canadian insurance provider to cover any medical expense for up to $100,000. However, effective July 4, 2022, some reforms will be made to make this process easier for parents and grandparents.

Starting July 4, 2022, instead of two years, Super Visa holders will be allowed to remain in Canada for up to five years per entry. In addition, those who already have a Super Visa can apply to extend their stay while in Canada, which means that they now have the option to stay in Canada for up to seven consecutive years if they wish to do so. Also, Canada’s Immigration Minister will have the authority to assign some international medical insurance companies to provide medical coverage to Super Visa applicants; we will have more information about this in the future.

Did you know that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) accepts around 17,000 Super Visa applications every year?
