Super Visa in Canada

Immigrating to Canada can be a complex and time-consuming process, but it’s even more challenging when you’re trying to bring a parent or grandparent to the country. The Super Visa is a temporary resident permit that allows these family members to visit Canada for up to five years at a time, but the application process can be difficult to navigate without help. This is where an immigration lawyer at the Edmonton Law Office can help.

What is a Super Visa?

The Super Visa is a special type of visitor visa that allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents to visit Canada for up to five (5) years at a time. It’s a multi-entry visa, meaning the holder can come and go from Canada as often as they like if the visa remains valid.

The Super Visa was introduced in 2011 to make it easier for families to be reunited in Canada. It’s a relatively new option, and the requirements for it are still evolving, so it’s important to work with an experienced immigration lawyer to make sure that your application is complete and accurate.

Do I need medical insurance to obtain a Super Visa in Canada?

Yes, medical insurance is a requirement for obtaining a Super Visa to Canada. The Canadian government requires that all applicants for the Super Visa have valid medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company that covers them for at least one year and provides a minimum of $100,000 in emergency coverage. This coverage must be in place before the visa can be issued.

The medical insurance must also include health care, hospitalization, and repatriation.

You may also be required to take a medical examination when applying for a Super Visa in Canada.

How an immigration lawyer can help

An immigration lawyer is a specialist in the field of Canadian immigration law. They understand the complex rules and regulations surrounding the Super Visa and can help you navigate the application process. Here are just a few ways that our immigration lawyers can help you with your Super Visa application:

  1. Evaluate your eligibility: Not everyone is eligible for the Super Visa. An immigration lawyer can evaluate your case to see if you and your parent or grandparent qualify. They can also help you understand the specific requirements you’ll need to meet to be approved.
  2. Prepare the application: The Super Visa application process can be overwhelming. An immigration lawyer can help you gather all the necessary documents, fill out the forms, and ensure that your application is complete and accurate. They can also help you prepare for the visa interview if one is required.
  3. Prepare you to face an interview: An immigration lawyer can prepare you for an interview with immigration officials. Given the significant number of years our lawyers have in this field, rest assured that the preparation will remove anything coming as a surprise.
  4. Appeal a denied application: If your Super Visa application is denied, one of our Alberta immigration lawyers can help you understand the reasons why and can help you file an appeal. They can also provide guidance on improving your chances of being approved on the next application.
