Imagine waiting anxiously at the Vancouver International Airport, the crisp Canadian air nipping at your cheeks as you wait to embrace your parents, who you haven't seen in years. The joy in their eyes is evident as they step out of the arrival gates, and you know that the efforts you put into securing a Super Visa for them were all worth it. At Ansari Immigration, we've been fortunate to be part of many such joyful reunions, aiding families in navigating through the immigration process seamlessly.
Testimonials: “I had a ton of questions about the Super Visa process, but the team at Ansari Immigration was always there. They were like the beacon of hope guiding us through a stormy night,” shares Michael, who reunited with his parents last winter.
Q&A on Super Visa:
What is a Super Visa? A Super Visa allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents to stay in Canada for up to two years without the need to renew their status.
Who is eligible? The key eligibility criteria include having a child or grandchild in Canada, possessing valid travel insurance, and showing proof of funds.
