Each year, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) receives applications for sponsorship of nearly 38,000 parents and grandparents. Currently, more than 165,000 applicants are still waiting for a final decision.
The time to process these applications is lengthy not to mention the backlog that exists in the study of the applications. To deal with this matter, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) created the new Parent and Grandparent Super Visa. The Super Visa will help to bring loved ones together in a matter of weeks, this Visa would allow faster family reunification .
The major advantage about this type of visa, is that now parents and grandparents can visit family in Canada for up to two years without the need to renew their status and it is valid for up to 10 years.
