VISA-Super Family-Full Service Registration
1. How does the parent and grandparent super visa differ from a visitor visa?
Currently, most visitors to Canada may visit for up to six months when they first enter Canada. Visitors who wish to stay longer must apply for an extension, and pay a new fee.
With the parent and grandparent super visa, eligible parents and grandparents can visit family in Canada for up to two years without the need to renew their status.

To apply for the parent and grandparent super visa, you must:
- Be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada,
- Be allowed to enter Canada and
- Meet certain other conditions.
3. Is the parent and grandparent super visa a multi- entry visa?
Yes, the super visa is a multi- entry visa. It allows multiple entries for up to 10 years.
4. What’s the difference between the parent and grandparent super visa and the 10-year multiple entry visa?
