VISITOR VISA VS. SUPER VISA | SUPER VISA CANADA CHECKLIST INCLUDED
Updated: Aug 19, 2022
Are you interested in bringing your parents from abroad to visit Canada? You may be asking yourself: What’s the difference between a visitor visa and a super visa? Today, Jade explains this in detail.
SUPER VISA FOR PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS
The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa is a document that allows you to visit your children or grandchildren in Canada for up to 2 years at a time. The Super Visa is a multi-entry visa that provides multiple entries for a period of up to 10 years.
The Visitor Visa, on the other hand, is designed for those who want to stay in Canada for six months or less. As such, the Visitor Visa is typically ideal for those who wish to visit Canada on a short, temporary basis.
SUPER VISA CANADA CHECKLIST
To simplify the process, we have created a Super Visa Canada checklist to give you an idea of what to submit with your application.
1. Gather the Documents. Download the document checklist (IMM 5485) to find a list of the document you will need to submit with your Super Visa application. Some examples of the documents you will need to submit include:
A photocopy of your passport or travel document
Two photos of yourself (these must meet the visa application specifications)
Proof of financial support
A photocopy of your current immigration status
A letter of invitation from your child/grandchild residing in Canada as a permanent resident or Canadian citizen
Documents to prove that your child/grandchild meets the Low Income Cut-off minimum
Proof of Private medical insurance coverage for at least one year with a Canadian insurance company
2. Complete the application. To apply for the Super Visa, you must complete the following application forms:
Document Checklist – Applicants in Canada (IMM 5721), if applicable
Statutory Declaration of Common-law Union (IMM 5409), if applicable
Authority to release personal information to a designated individual (IMM 5475), if applicable
3. Pay the fees. You must pay the application processing fee and the biometrics fee to avoid delays in the processing of your application.
Application processing fee: $100 CAD per person
Biometrics fee: $85 CAD per person
4. Submit the application. When your application is complete, you must either send your application to a Visa Application Center (VAC) in your area or submit an application online. To provide your biometrics, you must visit a biometric collection services point near you.
