Canada Super Visa

Canada Announces Changes to Super Visa Income Minimums for 2024

A super visa is a Canadian visa that allows parents or grant parents to visit their children or grandchildren who are Canadian Citizens or PR holders in Canada, for a continuous period of 5 years. This 10 year multiple entry visa is the most convenient route for them to stay back in Canada without visa renewals in a 5-year term. Canada Super Visa is also a better option than the 10-year multiple entry visitor visa that allows only for a 6-month stay in a single visit. Moreover, in case the parent or grandparent wishes to extend their stay in the country beyond 5 years it is possible to extend for another 2 years before the end of the 5-year term.  

The bright side is that the success rates of these applications are usually high. However, it is not a visa scheme that takes in applicants with loose regulations. Certain conditions including income minimums for the children or grandchildren who make the visa invitation, based on their family size, is required.  Health insurance plan for the grandparent or parent is another necessity among others. Similar to Canada Skilled Migration these requirements are to ensure financial support and well being through the duration of the visit. The latest news in this visa scheme is a revision of the income minimums as of June 3, 2024.

Income Requirement: An Overview.

The children or grandchildren who host the parent or grandparent have to show that they earn a minimum income so that they can support the latter’s stay in Canada.
