Super Visa Canada

Canadian Immigration and Recruitment Consultants in Surrey, BC

A super visa lets you visit your children or grandchildren for as long as 2 consecutive years. It's a multi-entry visa that gives multiple entries for a period of 10 years. The super visa has permitted a large number of international parents and grandparents to come to Canada for long periods, allowing for family reunification and childcare assistance. The spouse or common-law partner of an applicant may also come to Canada on the same status, but other dependents may not.
