Super visa is a multiple-entry visa for parents and grandparents of permanent residents or Canadian citizens. It is a temporary resident visa that allows your parents and grandparents to stay in Canada for up to 5 years continuously without applying for an extension. Whereas, the visitor visa allows them to stay in Canada for only 6 months per visit.

Super Visa has a far better success rate than the visitor visa if you meet the Low-Income Cut-Off (LICO) required for super visa. The income can be found in the line 150 on your last year’s notice of assessment and your T4. The 2022 LICO for super visa is described as below:


Size of the family Minimum Necessary Gross Income
1 Person $27,514
2 Persons $34,254
3 Persons $42,100
4 Persons $51,128
5 Persons $57,988
6 Persons $65,400
7 Persons $72,814
More than 7 persons, for each additional person, add $7,412

You must also buy an upfront medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company with at least $100,000 coverage and valid for 1 year from the day of arrival in Canada.
