Super Visa - Your Golden Ticket to Reunite with Your Family in Canada

What is a super visa?

A super visa lets you visit your children or grandchildren for up to 5 years at a time. It’s a visa that provides multiple entries for a period up to 10 years. There are specific requirements for a super visa, including the need for medical insurance. You must meet all the criteria to be eligible. Furthermore, as a super visa holder, you need to renew and/or maintain your medical insurance while in Canada and on re-entry

To be eligible for a super visa, you must:

  • Be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada.

  • Have a signed letter from your child or grandchild who invites you to Canada that includes the following:

    • A promise of financial support for the length of your visit.

    • The list and number of people in the household of this person.

    • A copy of this person’s Canadian citizenship or permanent resident document.

  • Have proof of private medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company. This medical insurance needs to be valid for at least one year from the date you’ll enter Canada, cover your health care, hospitalization and repatriation, and provide at least $100,000 in emergency coverage.

  • Apply for a super visa from outside Canada, have your visa printed outside Canada (wait for visa office instructions), be allowed to enter Canada, take an immigration medical exam, and meet certain other conditions.

  • Dependents cannot be included in this application.

The child or grandchild who invites you must prove that their household meets the minimum necessary income. The following documents are examples of what can be used as proof of funds:

  • Notice of Assessment (NOA) or T4/T1 for the most recent tax year.

  • Employment Insurance Benefit statements.

  • An employment letter including salary, job title, job description, and date of hire.

  • Pay stubs.

  • Bank statements.

You must be a genuine visitor to Canada who will leave by choice at the end of your visit. The following factors will be considered:

  • Your ties to your home country.

  • The purpose of your visit.

  • Your family and finances.

  • The overall economic and political stability of your home country.


  • Firstly, gather your documents which include: a letter of invitation from your child or grandchild, proof that your child or grandchild’s household meets the minimum necessary income, and proof of payment for medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company.

  • Apply for a super visa online with the IRCC Portal. You must be outside Canada when you apply. If you are visa-exempt, you can still apply for a super visa.

  • The online application process involves creating an account, completing the online form and uploading your documents, and paying with a credit card.


The fees start from $100, and processing times vary by country. The processing times will depend on several factors, including the type of application submitted if the application is complete, how quickly we expect to process applications we’ve already received, how easily we can verify your information, how long you take to respond to any requests or concerns, and other factors.
