Canada’s Parents & Grandparents Sponsorship Program and the Super Visa Option

Canada’s Parents & Grandparents Sponsorship Program & the Super Visa

The Canadian Government on the 28th of January opened its Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship Program and closed it within a few minutes stating that it has received enough applications. Canada also stated that it witnessed more than 100,000 individuals trying to access the Interest to Sponsor Form but only 27,000 were fortunate enough to access it.

The Parents and Grandparents Program once drew much traction & criticism among the eligible sponsors. Individuals stated that the process was unfair due to its random lottery method as they had to wait much longer than the others. The Canadian Government after taking this into consideration introduced the first-come first-serve method of issuing invitations.

It should be noted that individuals who have not been able to obtain an Interest to Sponsor form on the 28th of January Draw still have an opportunity to bring their parents into Canada via the Canadian Super Visa on a temporary basis.

The Canadian Super Visa is nothing but a multiple-entry visa which will be allowing eligible sponsors to bring their parents & grandparents to visit Canada for up to two years at a time. The Canadian Super Visa is often considered as an Ideal Temporary Resident Visa for Parents and Grandparents which allows them to travel within Canada without any restrictions.

The Super Visa applications will be processed within a few weeks (as said by the IRCC) and is a popular visa option because of its year-round availability and a lower income requirement. An applicant to apply for a Canadian Super Visa must provide a letter as proof which includes a promise of financial support from the child or grandchild living in Canada, their Canadian permanent resident or citizenship’s document copy. The applying individual should also have a medical insurance which is valid for at least a minimum of one year, providing coverage of at least CAD 100,000.

IRCC has also stated that individuals visiting Canada under the Super Visa should return to their own country during the end of visa duration. To know more about the Canadian Super Visa and to check your eligibility to migrate to Canada, get in touch with our team of experts for free!
