The Honorable Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Sean Fraser, announced new Canada Super Visa changes that will benefit Indian nationals. When you apply for Canada Super Visa, which is a multiple-entry visa, it allows parents and grandparents of permanent residents and citizens of Canada to remain in the country for a period of 2 years at a time without status renewal.

Launched in 2011, Canada Super Visa is the best way for Canada immigration. It has benefited families across Canada to take care of their parents and grandparents in their presence. In addition, the Super Visa applicant’s common-law partner or spouse can also visit Canada on similar status. Kindly note that those who arrive in Canada on Super Visa are not allowed to work during their stay.

What are the new changes to Canada Super Visa benefitting Indians?

The Canadian government prioritizes family reunification so that they can attract more immigrants that contribute to the country’s success. The IRCC Minister, Sean Fraser, announced that they are going to make it easier for permanent residents and citizens to reunite with their parents and grandparents in Canada.

They have permitted Canada Super Visa holders to stay in the country for a longer duration

Let us help you to know more about Canada Super Visa

Here are the benefits of a Canada Super Visa for Indians -

  • The Government of Canada has increased the length of stay to 5 years per entry into the country.
  • Super Visa holders can also request to extend their stay in Canada by up to 2 years.
  • IRCC will make a list of international medical insurance companies that will provide coverage to holders of Super Visa, which only Canadian insurance companies were providing till now.
These new benefits will make the Canada Super Visa from India better than the regular multiple-entry visitor visa, which only allows you to stay for 6 months or less.

Difference Between Super Visa and Visitor Visa

Well, the Super Visa of Canada is a type of Visitor Visa, but it is only offered to grandparents and parents of permanent residents and citizens of Canada. The only difference between the two is the time allowed to stay in the country.

The Visitor Visa permits you to be in Canada for 6 months, and you have to extend the visa for a prolonged stay. On the other hand, with a Super Visa, you can stay in Canada for 2 years maximum at a time without extending the visa.
