Super Visas

Canada believes in reunification of immigrants and their families to be together in Canada which is why they have designed Super Visa also known as Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). A super visa allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to invite their parents and grandparents to live with them for up to 2 years at a time. It’s a multi-entry visa that provides multiple entries for a period up to 10 years.

To be eligible for the super visa, applicants must be the parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents. A work or study permit holder are not eligible for PGP program.

In addition, the applicant must meet the following requirements:

  • Be at least 18 years old,
  • Must be living in Canada,
  • Have a written commitment of financially supporting your Parents and/or Grandparents,
  • Have enough money to support your Parents and/or Grandparents (you will need to provide your proof of income),
  • Prove of Canadian medical insurance coverage for at least one year.

If you hope to have your parent or grandparent stay in Canada permanently, you will need to submit a parental sponsorship application.
