What is Super Visa?
A super visa is a temporary visa that allows parents and/or grandparents to live in Canada with their families.
Furthermore, it allows for multiple entries that are valid for ten years.
As a result, parents and grandparents who qualify for the super visa can stay in Canada for five years without having to renew their visa.
A Canada super visa is distinguished by the fact that it permits holders to stay in Canada for five years on each entry.
In contrast, 10-year multiple-entry visitor visas only allow for a six-month stay for each arrival.
The super visa is an excellent alternative to the parents and grandparents program (PGP), which only accepts a limited number of people for permanent residency.
