Stay Up To 7 Years In Canada On A Super Visa.

Published on : Sun, Jun 12 2022     273

Through the Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents, you can stay in Canada for up to 7 years.

Changes to the Parents and Grandparents Super Visa announced on Tuesday would allow candidates to stay in Canada for up to seven years in a row.

The length of stay for Super Visa holders will be raised to five years beginning July 4, with the possibility of requesting an extra two years while in Canada.

Additionally, Ottawa will let overseas medical insurance providers cover Super Visa applicants. Only Canadian corporations are allowed to provide the coverage, which is essential so that Super Visa holders may obtain emergency medical treatment at no expense to Canadian taxpayers.

"The enhancements to the super visa programme allow family members to stay together in Canada for longer periods of time, which helps everyday Canadian citizens and permanent residents succeed and contribute to society while providing their parents and grandparents with priceless opportunities to spend time with their families," said Immigration Minister Sean Fraser.

The multiple-entry Super Visa, introduced in 2011, is valid for ten years and allows applicants to remain for up to two years every visit. That time is normally six months or fewer under an ordinary multiple-entry visit visa.

To support the visa holder, the candidate's kid or grandchild in Canada must fulfil minimal income standards.

According to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), roughly 17,000 Super Visas are issued each year.

The visa is a viable alternative to the PGP, which offers a road to permanent residency for parents and grandparents.

The PGP is frequently overcrowded and runs on a lottery system, leaving many people wondering if they will ever be able to bring their relatives to Canada.
