Are you planning to immigrate to Canada? Well, it is going to be a hard decision, your visa type does not allow you to take your family along with you. But later on, you can apply for a visa for your loved ones under the family sponsorship program. You need to be strong for a few years and keep doing that hard work in Canada. Eventually, you can sponsor your family to visit you or live with you permanently.

Let us help you to know more about Canada Super Visa

Why Choose Super Visa for Family Sponsorship?

Super visa is a great initiative by IRCC that reunites the parents and grandparents with the individual residing in Canada. This visa is quite similar to a visitor visa but has more validity as one can stay more than six months. In fact, a few months ago, the stay length of the super visa increased from two years to five years. Even, super visa holders can now extend their stay up to two years while in Canada. One more change is the applicants can now attain insurance for a super visa from Canadian insurers as well as non-Canadian (designated) insurance companies. These rules apply for the applications approved after 4th July 2023 and chances are high that your parents or grandparents can stay in Canada for up to seven years. In case your parents or grandparents do not plan to stay in Canada for a longer period, then you can opt for a standard visitor visa for Canada with six months of validity.
