Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between the parent and grandparent super visa and the 10-year multiple entry visa?
The prime difference between a super visa and a 10-year multiple entry visa is based on the duration of stay allowed in each. A person with a super visa can come to Canada multiple times during the validity of the visa, and each trip can last up to 2 years at a time. In contrast, those with a 10-year multiple entry visa are allowed to stay only for up to 6 months per visit.
Who is eligible for a parent/grandparent super visa?
The parent or grandparents of a Permanent Resident in Canada or a Canadian citizen are eligible to apply for a super visa. They need to fulfill all the necessary requirements for a super visa. The dependent children of your parents/grandparents are not eligible for a super visa. The children can apply for other visa options if they wish to come to Canada.
Can a holder of a super visa apply for a Permanent Residency in Canada?
The super visa holder can stay in Canada as a temporary resident. They are allowed to stay in Canada for a maximum of two years per visit.
