COVID-19 UPDATE: The Government of Canada  has implemented travel restrictions which prohibit some persons from entering Canada and may require additional documents for those who are exempted from same. As such, please click here to find out if you are eligible for travel to Canada. 

A super visa allows a parent or grandparent of a permanent resident or Canadian citizen to visit Canada on a multiple-entry temporary resident visa (TRV) for a period of up to 2 years at a time; it is distinguishable from a 'regular' TRV which usually allows for a routine visit of up to 6 months per visit. The visa is usually issued with a validity of up to 10 years or the validity of one’s passport, whichever arrives first. As a general rule for all temporary residents, applicants must satisfy the officer that they intend on leaving Canada at the end of their authorized stay and that they are not inadmissible.


The application must be submitted from outside Canada. Officers will assess various factors such as: family ties to home country, the purpose for the visit, financial standing, and the overall economic and political stability of a person’s home country to determine whether they are a bona fide visitor. The host must further satisfy the officer that they are able to provide support for the duration of the applicant’s stay by meeting the low-income cut-off (LICO) minimum. Furthermore, the applicant must be admissible on health grounds and provide evidence that a medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company with a minimum validity period of 1 year from the date of entry has been sought, which covers the applicant’s healthcare, hospitalization and repatriation costs of up to CAD$100,000. The current cost for the application is set at $100 per person.
