Parent / Grand Parent Super Visa
If you do not need a visitor visa to enter Canada, you can still use the parent and grandparent super visa to stay in Canada for up to two years.
Complete and submit the requested documents to prove your eligibility. If we approve the application, we will issue you a letter to give to a border services officer when you arrive in Canada. In addition, if you travel by air, you need to apply for an eTA separately to allow you to travel to and enter Canada. The eTA will be electronically linked to your passport, so you need to travel with the passport you use to apply for your eTA, and your letter to facilitate your travel to Canada. The officer at the border may approve a visit to Canada for up to two years.
You will need a Medical exam to enter Canada with a parent and grandparent super visa. A Canadian immigration officer will send you instructions about what to do.
You may have to go for visa interview.
