It’s never easy for parents or grandparents when a loved one moves to another country. Essentially, when a loved one moves to another country, you’re limited in terms of the amount of time you’re able to visit them. Canada Immigration Int. provides immigration services, including the Parents and Grandparents Super Visa, for parents or grandparents with loved ones living in Canada.
The Parents and Grandparents Super Visa allows individuals to visit their family members and stay for up to 2 years consecutively. This differs from a traditional visitor visa, which only allows individuals to visit their family members and stay for 6 months at a time. For visa-exempt nations, this enables them to apply for a Letter of Introduction from outside of Canada.
Once this letter is produced upon arrival, border officials will verify the letter and allow the person entry. The Parents and Grandparents Super Visa is valid for 10 years, so long as provisions are followed. The holder is able to visit whenever they please, but they must keep in mind, the visa will become invalid one month prior to the expiry date of their passport.
Canada Immigration Int. offers a short processing time for those who apply for the Parents and Grandparents Super Visa. In fact, the typical waiting time is around 8 weeks. The requirements are mostly the same as those for a standard visa: possess a valid passport, be in good health, demonstrate ties with their home nation, and showcase evidence of sufficient funds for the duration of the visit.
In addition to the requirements for a standard visa, applicants must also be able to:
- Undergo a full medical examination
- Provide evidence of ties to the family member
- Secure medical insurance in the country for at least 12 months with coverage no less than $100,000 encompassing hospitalization and repatriation.
The family member of the person applying must prove residency and/or citizenship, as well as showcase the fact that their income is higher than the predetermined minimum. They will also be responsible for providing a letter of invitation prior to the visit, which includes details on the visit and information on the applicant. The letter of invitation should also promise to financially support the applicant if required.
