About Services

To be eligible for the super visa, applicants must be the parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents. The Super Visa is a multi-entry visa that provides multiple entries for a period up to 10 years. The key feature is that the Super Visa allows an individual to stay for up to two years at a time in Canada. Dependants of parents and grandparents are not eligible for the super visa. However, they can apply for a regular visitor visa.

 

A visitor visa which is also called a temporary resident visa, is an official document that is pinned in your passport which represents that you meet all the necessary requirements needed to enter Canada. Most travellers need a visitor visa to travel to Canada, and it can be easily applied via online means or on paper.
