You now have another option to do that, using the recent addition to the list of Temporary Resident Visa's. This is called the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa.
If approved in the Super Visa Canada, your parent will be given a Visa Validity of 1o years and they will be able to stay in Canada for a maximum of 2 years before they will be required to exit Canada.
This is what you should know:
To apply your Parent or Grandparent must meet the following to apply for the Super Visa Canada:
*Be the parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada;
*Be found admissible to Canada; and meet certain other conditions.
Note: Your Parent of Grandparent cannot include dependents in their application. Only their spouse or common-law partner is eligible to accompany them under this provision.
Visa officers will consider several factors before deciding if a person will qualify under this application. Your parent or Grandparent must prove that they will become real visitors in Canada who will leave by choice at the end of their visit.
Among the things that could be considered are:
*the person’s ties to the home country
Do they have their own house? Do they have a healthy retiment plan, are they financially stable? Do they have their life in their country including their siblings or the rest of their families? Do they have investments?
*the purpose of the visit;
*the person’s family and financial situation;
*the overall economic and political stability of the home country; and
*an invitation from a Canadian host
In addition to being found admissible to Canada, your parent or grandparent will also be required to:
*provide a written commitment of financial support from you who is currently Canada; you must be able to send documentation that you meet the minimum income threshold to qualify you or your parent or Grandparent to apply for Super Visa Canada;
Low Income Cut-Off (LICO)
|Size of Family Unit||Minimum necessary income|
|1 person (your child or grandchild)||$22,229|
|More than 7 persons, for each additional person, add||$5,989|
You should help your Parent or Grand parent prove that they have bought Canadian medical insurance coverage for at least one year; and complete an Immigration Medical Examination.
Quoting the cic.gc.ca website:
Proof that you have private medical insurance valid for a minimum of one year from a Canadian insurance company and that:
Covers health care, hospitalization and repatriation;
Provides a minimum coverage of $100,000; and
is valid for each entry to Canada and available for review by a port of entry officer.
What I suggest is for you to determine first if your income meets the Minimum Income Threshold for the application before we start your Parent or Grandparents application for Super Visa Canada
