What is a Super Visa?
A Super Visa is a long-term, multiple-entry visa for parents and grandparents of permanent residents or Canadian citizens.
The "Parent and Grandparent Super Visa" is a temporary resident permit that allows parents and grandparents to stay for up to 2 years in Canada per visit. It is valid for up to 10 years.
A regular "Multiple-Entry Visa" or "Visitor Visa" is also valid for up to 10 years, but only allows stays of up to 6 months per visit.
