    Can I afford super visa for my Parents?

    You’re looking forward to bringing your parents or grandparents to visit you in Canada. You’ve heard all about the Super Visa program – officially called The Parent and Grandparent Extended Stay Temporary Resident Visa – and how your parents (or grandparents) can stay for up to 2 years (and valid for up to 10 years) and/or be allowed multiple entries into Canada.

    In addition to meeting standard temporary residence requirements for any visitor to Canada, your parents/grandparents must also submit the following:

    • A letter of invitation from you, the child or grandchild of the Super Visa applicants;
    • One of the following documents to prove that you, the child or grandchild of the Super Visa applicants, meet the LICO (Low Income cut-off) minimum:
      • Most recent copy of your Notice of Assessment from Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), OR
      • Most recent copy of your T4 or T1 slips, OR
      • A signed and dated letter from your Canadian employer stating your:
        • Job Title,
        • Job Description,
        • Salary, OR
      • Your most recent employment insurance pay stubs, OR
      • A printed copy of your tax returns, obtained online by using CRA’s My Account.
    • Documented proof of your parents/grandparents’ relationship to you (for example: your long-term birth certificate naming your parents, translated if necessary)
    • Proof of valid Health Insurance with a Canadian insurance company, in the form of a copy of the insurance policy or certificate. Must be for a minimum term of 1 year and a minimum coverage of CAD$100,000 required.

    Here are the minimum income levels you must meet for your parents/grandparents to visit you in Canada using a Super Visa. The family size refers to your family unit.

    So, to prove you meet the LICO minimum, it is very helpful to register for a My Account with the Canada Revenue Agency. Here’s how to go about getting your My Account opened and up and running with the CRA.

The phone rang at 7. 00 pm and I though to myself that this is a regular call from office about the additional work that I will be assigned to complete from home. I checked my phone and the number displayed was from Canada...
