Good day,


Can a sponsored Parent / Grandparent Super Visa holder apply for Permanent Residence in Canada while in Canada on their Super Visa?

The Super Visa holder meets the minimum required physical presence of 730 days during and part of their 2.5 years stay.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
M.

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

A sponsored parent/grandparent super visa holder can apply for permanent residence. The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa (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. If your parent/grandparent wishes to stay permanently, they must be sponsored for permanent residence or apply for permanent residence. You may find helpful information in the Temporary resident permits: applying for permanent residence section of the IRCC website.

We hope this information is helpful and we recommend that you seek legal help from a lawyer or a licensed consultant familiar with Canadian immigration for case-specific advice.

Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org team
