Parents and Grandparents Super Visa Reforms
The reforms in the Parents Super Visa Canada are as follows:
- Parents and Grandparents can stay for 5 years with a Super Visa every time they immigrate to the country.
- If you currently have a Super Visa, you can request a 2-year extended stay while living in Canada. This concludes that Grandparents Super Visa candidates can stay in Canada for seven years in a row.
- It is anticipated that Canada’s Immigration Minister will provide medical coverage to Canada’s Super Visa applicants through international medical insurance companies.
Super Visa candidates currently can stay for two years in Canada per entry. Canadian Super Visa is valid for 10 years.
IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has not announced more details about the medical insurance, for now, only Canadian medical insurance companies can provide coverage to the Grandparents Super Visa immigrants.
Conservative Party of Canada, Kyle Seeback who is a Member of Parliament proposed these reforms via Bill C-242. IRCC released a press which indicates, that Canada’s ruling Liberal Party will vote in favour of Bill C-242. The Political Party of Canada supports the reforms in the program.
In a recent report, IRCC mentioned that Canada issues around 17,000 Super Visas per year. IRCC offers Super Visa as a substitute for the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) for over 10 years.
Parents Super Visa Canada offers permanent residence to immigrants, but the number of spots is lesser than the demand to sponsor immigrants. IRCC received an interest form of 200,000 sponsors but offered the spots for only 20,000 PGP candidates.
