What is a Super Visa?
A super visa is a temporary visa that permits parents and grandparents to live with their families in Canada. In addition, it enables multiple entries valid for ten years. Therefore, parents and grandparents who qualify for the super visa can stay in Canada for five years without renewing their status.
The distinctive element of a super visa is that it allows holders to remain in Canada for five years on each entrance. Conversely, 10-year multiple-entry visitor visas only provide a six-month status for each entry.
Super visa is great alternative to parents and grandparents program (PGP) which only invite limited numbers for permanent residency.
