Super Visa – Put an end to homesickness

Updated: Jan 7

According to 2019 pre-pandemic statistics Canada has the eighth largest immigrant population in the world and about 21% population of Canada comprises foreign-born people. Canada welcomes immigrants in four categories (1) skilled workers, (2) refugees, (3) immigrants based on humanitarian reasons and (4) family of immigrants or citizens. People from all over the world move to Canada in search of career growth opportunities but along with that they bring homesickness. After settling down in Canada almost every immigrant family wants to bring their loved ones like parents/grandparents here.

Canadian government understands the importance of family and want to ensure that the immigrants who are their future citizens live a quality life with families. Canadian immigrants can avail one of two options to bring their family members in Canada (1) immigration and (2) super visa for parents and grandparents. Let’s review some pros and cons of these options:

Immigration of family members

  • Pros:

  1. Enjoy free health services covered by provincial government (e.g., OHIP health card).

  2. Lifetime residency in Canada.

  • Cons:

  1. Time-consuming and effort taking process to complete immigration application.

  2. Long waiting periods (3 or more years) due to big backlogs of applications in Canadian immigration and Citizenships (CIC) department.

Super Visa for parents and grandparents

  • Pros:

  1. Valid for 10 years.

  2. Visa is granted within few months. As compared to immigration there is no big backlog of applications.

  3. Visa application making does not require lot of time and effort as compared to immigrant application.

  4. Can stay in Canada for two years.

  5. Allows multiple entries.

  • Cons:

  1. Medical services are not covered by provincial government.

  2. Need to exit Canada after two years but can return any time during the validity period of visa.

  3. Super visa insurance application MUST require medical insurance for at least one year (365 days) of minimum $100,000 coverage.
