Canada Denying Lots of Super Visa Applications

By Michael Niren September 15, 2012 (Updated June 29, 2022) 1 min. read

July 2022 Update: As of July 4, 2022, the length of stay for Super Visa holders in Canada will be expanded to five years per entrance. Learn more here.

In the spring of 2012, the Canadian Government put the family sponsorship of parents and grandparents on pause, but at the same time introduced the Super Visa – a 10 year, multiple entry visa that parents and grandparents could use to come to Canada for two years at a time. However, multiple media outlets are reporting that many of these Super Visa applications are being rejected.

Super Visa Applications Rejected

Many people in Canada had been waiting for years to sponsor their parents or grandparents to come to Canada, but a huge backlog meant it felt like nothing would ever get approved. Many were relieved to hear about the Super Visa.

Applicants must meet certain requirements as well as pay for their own health care to apply for a Super Visa.

Concerning Super Visa Factors

Once concerning factor is that there are reports of visa officers limiting people’s visits to six or nine months – despite the fact that Citizenship and Immigration Canada had said the visas are good for two years at a time. About 23 per cent of the Super Visa applications are being refused, compared to about 20 per cent of temporary resident permits.

The Toronto Star reported that one person was told their insufficient ties to their home country and the length of their visit to Canada were the reasons they were denied.

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.
