Super Visa Insurance

Super Visa Insurance

Canada’s Super Visa program was first created in late 2011. The Canadian government announced that it was moving to cut the backlog of permanent resident applications for parents and grandparents of Canadian Residents. Over 165,000 parents and grandparents had applied for permanent resident status in Canada by this time, which had caused the application review and processing time to exceed 7 years in some cases. 

A Super Visa is a temporary resident permit that allows parents and grandparents to stay for up to 2 years in Canada per visit without needing to renew. Each Super Visa is valid for up to 10 years, allowing for re-entry during this period of time. A regular multiple-entry visa is also valid for up to 10 years, but only allows stays of up to 6 months per visit. With a Super Visa, older generations of a family will be able to visit loved ones in Canada for an extended period of time without work rights.

It is important to know that no dependents can be included on a Super Visa application – only parents or grandparents, together with spouses or common-law partners, of Canadian Residents are eligible to apply.

The cost associated with a Super Visa will vary depending on the client and other various conditions – contact Daya Insurance today and get a free Super Visa Insurance quote quickly and easily!
