This multiple-entry visa is valid for up to 10 years and provides parents and grandparents with the flexibility of being able to visit family in Canada for up to two years without needing to renew their status.
Parents and grandparents wanting to visit their families in Canada for a longer period of time continue to take advantage of the Super Visa. With close to 1,200 Super Visas issued monthly, this remains one of Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s most popular programs.
