Many families have been split apart as a result of children and grandchildren attempting to immigrate to Canada and start a new life.

The super visa is a visitor’s visa for parents and grandparents who wish to visit their children or grandchildren in Canada. This super visa allows for multiple persons to visit Canada for a period of 2 years at a time and with a status period of up to 10 years. This article will talk about who is eligible for a super visa, what to do if it is refused, super visa extensions, and financial requirements in order to allow for a parent/grandparent to obtain a super visa.

We Can Help With Your Applications

We-Can-Help-With-Your-Applications
How to Avoid Common Application Mistakes

The number one reason applications are refused is because they are riddled with mistakes. These applications are difficult applications to pursue on your own, because, if you are unfamiliar with the process, there is a good chance you overlook certain details and submit an imperfect application. Unfortunately for applicants, the Canadian Government is not interesting in assisting others file applications; this is why they recommend you consult an immigration specialist, or a lawyer. It often comes as a surprise when an application which is incomplete is returned and refused, without any ability to re-submit it and pick up where it left off. However, one needs to understand, immigration and border protection cannot be taken lightly. Applications must be complete and robust for the security of Canada as a whole. Therefore, it makes sense that when an application is complete, it cannot simply be approved. Furthermore, the Canadian government has to devote all its time and resources to processing and approving complete applications for individuals who truly deserve to fulfill their long-worked-for-wish of immigrating to Canada. Everyone who submits an application to immigration can understand, the wait time are agonizing at the best of times, and they would not like to think their applications are being inefficient they are spending too much time processing applications. Ultimately, we have created this article to help applicants have an easier time submitting applications which will not be returned and refused, and get everyone working together to help Canadian border officers process more files successfully.

1. Always check country specific requirements before submitting your application.

Regardless of the type of application you are submitting, whether it be for permanent residence, or for temporary residence, please take the time to do this. Depending on the country and the type of application you are submitting, you could need to submit additional documents. Or for example, you could have to submit originals of some documents which other countries are only required to submit a copy of. If you do not submit original documents when required, your application will be returned as incomplete.

How to Restore your Status in Canada

How-to-Restore-your-Status-in-Canada
What is “Restoration of Status?”

Restoration of status is a fancy term for the process an individual who wishes to change or extend the terms of their temporary stay in Canada, necessarily goes through. As a temporary visitor to Canada, you only have legal status in Canada to stay for a designated period of time, therefore, if you decide you would like to stay longer to study or work, you must apply to extend your permit before the permit expires. If you fail to apply for a new permit before yours expires, you will not be on implied status, and rather, you will now have to apply for a restoration of status. A restoration of status is needed by any individual who allows their permit to expire before submitting a new application, but still would like to remain in Canada. If this is the case for you, I will be breaking down how to go about applying to restore your status in Canada, and successfully obtain a new valid temporary permit which will allow you to remain in Canada.

Who Needs to Apply for Restoration of Status?

The most important criteria to meet before applying for a restoration of status, to ensure you are even required to restore your status, is that you have allowed your temporary visa allowing you to be in Canada, to expire. Similar to this, you could also find yourself eligible to apply for restoration of status as the result of failing to abide by the conditions of your work or study permit. Specifically, you must have violated the condition to only work for the employer listed on your work permit, or, because you changed your program of study or educational institute from the one which is listed as a condition on your study permit. If you do either of these things and consequently have your study permit revoked, you can apply to restore your status on the new conditions of your permit. Though, it is important you did not violate any other conditions of your temporary permit. Next, it is equally important this permit has expired less than 90 days before you submit your application to restore your status. If it has been longer than 90 days, you are unfortunately ineligible. Finally, as mentioned, you must have complied well with the conditions on the original permit. Failure to have done so would also result in having your application to restore your status refused.

Canada, being a land of immigrants, is filled with individuals who have migrated here, but have left members of their family behind in their country of origin, for one reason or another. This is often unavoidable, as it is not easy for an elderly individual to migrate their entire life overseas, and across borders. The Canadian government recognizes there are many families who are separated by borders and oceans, which do not get to see each other as often as they would like. For this, they have introduced the parents and grandparents super visa. The super visa program, allows parents and grandparents to apply for a document which allows them to visit Canada an unlimited number of times during the period which it is valid, and stay in Canada much longer than is typically allowed on a visitor’s visa. Though this does not allow families to reunite on a permanent basis, it does allow them to reunite much more often, for extended periods of time. Throughout this article, I will explain what a super visa is, and how to apply for one.

Specifically, the super visa is a temporary resident visa which is granted for a 10 year period, and allows individuals to enter Canada as many times as they would like.
