How to Bring your Parents to Canada?

The Canadian immigration system is very complicated, but at the same time, it’s also very easy to navigate. In fact, there are many people who have become permanent residents by following the prescribed procedure without any problem. But if you don’t know what you are doing, then it will be difficult for you to get through this process.

If you want your parents or grandparents to come over here permanently, then it is important that you know about super visas for parents. Let’s get started-

Why Choose Super Visa for Family Sponsorship?

The Super Visa, a new program by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, allows parents and grandparents to apply for a Canadian visitor visa. This new initiative is similar to the existing Visitor Visa Program but has more validity as one can stay more than six months. In fact, a few months ago, the stay length of the Super Visa increased from two years to five years. Even, Super Visa holders can now extend their stay up to two years while in Canada. One more change is that applicants can now attain insurance for a Super Visa from Canadian insurers as well as non-Canadian (designated) insurance companies. These rules apply for applications approved after 4th July 2023 and chances are high that your parents or grandparents can stay in Canada for up to seven years. In case your parents or grandparents do not plan to stay in Canada for a longer period then you can opt for a standard visitor visa for Canada with six months of validity.

Eligibility Requirements for the Super Visa to Canada

If you have a family sponsorship program taking a long time to process, you should apply for a super visa. This is the way to invite your parents and grandparents to live with you for a long time while the other visa keeps on processing. The requirements for a super visa are:

  • The individual providing sponsorship must hold permanent residency or citizenship in Canada.
  • A parent or grandparent can only be invited to Canada through a super visa by their child or grandchild.
  • Obtaining a year’s worth of medical insurance is required for the super visa.
  • To act as a sponsor, the minimum income requirement must be met, which is typically 33,140 dollars for a family of two and increases with each additional family member.
  • A medical examination is mandatory for individuals seeking immigration to Canada.

Information regarding the Parent and Grandparent Program

Parent and Grandparent Program is a system aimed at allowing parents and grandparents to immigrate to Canada permanently; this requires a sponsor who is 18 years old, residing in Canada, and with financial ability.
