The new Super Visa makes it easier than ever before for parents and grandparents to visit family members in Canada, allowing them to remain in the country for up to 24 months at a time, without having to renew their status. This visa is valid for 10 years and can permit a single entry or multi-entries into Canada.
One of the key requirements for obtaining the Super Visa for Canada is insurance. Super Visa applicants must submit proof that they have purchased private medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company which is valid for a minimum of one year and offers a minimum of $100,000 in coverage for health care, hospitalization and repatriation.
Statistics reveal that majority of the parents don't actually want to immigrate to Canada; they just want to visit loved ones on a regular basis. Parents visiting Canada under the Super visa category are overwhelmed with Super Visa as it has given an alternative for reunion with loved ones. All those parents who are still waiting for their prolonged immigration process are relieved with this super visa opportunity. The super visa could be a bridge from now until the permanent resident is accepted. So if the permanent resident process could take three to four years, then the super visa could act as a bridge.
