When will the Parents and Grandparents Program re-open to new applications?

If you want to sponsor your parents and grandparents, your first step is to check if you’re eligible to be a sponsor.

If you’re eligible, you must fill out a short online form to show you’re interested in sponsoring.

The interest to sponsor form was available for a limited time on January 28, 2019. We accepted 27,000 submissions on a first-in basis.

We invited potential sponsors to submit complete applications in the same order we got the interest to sponsor forms online.

If we invited you to apply, we need your complete application before the deadline on your invitation.

Details and opening date for the 2020 parents and grandparents program will be posted on this site when details are confirmed.
