Over 1,000 Super Visas Issued Monthly

Since its launch in December 2011, the new Parent and Grandparent Super Visa program has seen great success. To date, over 15,000 Super Visas have been issued to qualifying applicants. This translates to over 1,000 new Super Visa issuances each month.

The Super Visa program allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their parents or grandparents for long-term visitor status in Canada. Successful applicants receive a multiple entry visitor visa that is valid for up to 10 years. This visa allows parents or grandparents to remain in Canada for up to two years without the need to extend their status.

“The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa provides families with flexibility, and it is clearly growing in popularity,” said Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney. “Our government is committed to family reunification. I am pleased to see that more and more parents and grandparents are getting the opportunity to spend longer periods of time with their loved ones in Canada.”

The Super Visa program has been well received in Canada and around the world for its straightforward application, short processing times, and high acceptance rate.
