Parents and grandparents’ super visa

A Super Visa is a temporary resident visa granted to parents and grandparents of Permanent Residents and Canadian citizens, allowing them to visit their children/grandchildren in Canada for several years at a time. It is a multiple entry visa that permits multiple entries into Canada for a period of up to ten years.
As a permanent resident of Canada or Canadian citizen, you must meet certain requirements to invite your parents/grandparents to visit you in Canada:

You must sign an invitation letter in which you promise Immigration Canada that you will financially support your parents during their stay with you in Canada. In this context, you must prove that you have the minimum required income for this purpose.

As a host in Canada, you are also required to purchase health insurance policy from a Canadian insurance provider that covers your parents/grandparents for a minimum of 1 year with coverage of CAD 100,000.00. In addition, your parents must undergo a medical examination to prove their medical eligibility in Canada.

In fact, the ties to the home country, the purpose of the trip and the overall economic and political stability of your parent's/grandparent's home country are all factors among many others that are taken into consideration when the immigration officer makes his decision in the case of a super visa application.

Throughout our professional life in the immigration field, we helped several clients of ours to have their morning coffee with their parents/Grandparents in Canada with fewer headaches and low refusal rates. We were able to make this happen using our long experience to never leave a stone unturned when making the professional submission and eventually make it a great experience of glory and joy for our clients helping them bring their beloved ones next to them in Canada, even if they had a previous refusal, we always ask for the detailed reasons of rejections and reply to the decision maker's concerns in the right way to overcome those concerns.  

Wish to use our professional service to invite your parents / Grandparents to visit you in  Canada?
