In the new phase of Canadian immigration, much importance has been given to family reunification programs. There is an increase in the integration, attraction, and seamless synthesis of immigrants into the fabric of Canadian society and economy.
The Honorable Immigration Minister Sean Fraser announced enhancements to Canada’s much popular and widely spoken Super visa program.
These enhancements will make it hassle-free for the people of Canada to reunite with their families when they come to stay with them, be it parents or grandparents. Staying for an extended period is what this Super visa will allow.
These changes will come into effect from `4th July 2022, which will lengthen the duration of residence for holders of super visas to 5 years per entry into Canada. People who are holders of Super Visas have the choice to request for stay extension for up to two years at a time during their stay in Canada.
This move shall permit the Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship to allocate overseas medical insurance companies to extend coverage to super visa candidates in the upcoming times. Only Canadian insurance providers can provide the required medical coverage required by Canada Super Visa candidates.
Via this program, since 2011, citizens of Canada and permanent residents can come together with their parents and grandparents for extended durations of time. It is a multiple-entry visa valid for up to 10 years that allows parents and grandparents to enter Canada for up to 2 years (per entry). And, now the applicants can stay up to 5 years per entry in Canada.
The super visa program is much better and accrues more benefits for families than a regular multiple-entry visitor visa. The duration of stay is mostly six months or less than that.
