Parents and Grand Parents of Canadian Citizens can also come to Canada to visit their kids and their families on a temporary visa known as Super Visa. The biggest positive feature of Super Visa is that it allows the visitor to stay for a period of up to two consecutive years at their initial visit without having to renew their status.
The validity of this visa is up to 10 years, allowing for re-entry during this period of time. The Super Visa presents older generations of a family to visit loved ones in Canada for an extended period without work rights.
It allows the spouse or common-law partner of an applicant to be included in the application, but other dependents may not.
