What is a super visa?
A super visa lets you visit your children or grandchildren for up to 5 years at a time. It’s a visa that provides multiple entries for a period up to 10 years. When you enter Canada, a border services officer will confirm how long you can stay.
There are specific requirements for a super visa, including the need for medical insurance. You must meet all the criteria to be eligible.
If you want to stay for 6 months or less, apply for a visitor visa.
To be eligible for a super visa, you must:
✔ be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada
✔ have a signed letter from your child or grandchild who invites you to Canada that includes:
a promise of financial support for the length of your visit
the list and number of people in the household of this person
a copy of this person’s Canadian citizenship or permanent resident document

valid for at least 1 year from the date of entry
at least $100,000 emergency coverage
have proof that the medical insurance has been paid in full (quotes aren’t accepted)
Financial support (proof of funds)
