What’s the difference between the parent and grandparent super visa and a 10-year multiple entry visitor visa?
The key difference is that the super visa allows stays lasting up to 5 years per entry to Canada. Those travelling on a 10-year multiple-entry visa can only stay for up to six months per entry.
A single-entry super visa is also available. This remains at the discretion of a visa officer.
