The child or grandchild in Canada must create an Invitation Letter for the parents/grandparents to include in their application.
The Super Visa application cannot be completed or submitted without this Invitation Letter.
This is a great opportunity for the child or grandchild in Canada to explain in writing how much the visit would mean to him/her.
The letter must have the signature of the Inviter and if needed, the spouse’s signature. The Inviter’s spouse will need to sign this letter as well if his/her income is being included in order to meet the Minimum Income Threshold.
The following information MUST be Included in the Invitation Letter
Details about the Parents/Grandparents you are inviting:
- full name
- address and contact number
- state whether the applicants are your parents or grandparents
- state the purpose of their visit or what they will do
- the applicants’ length of stay
- indicate where they will stay and most importantly that you will be financially supporting the applicants for their entire stay in Canada, and
- indicate how long they will be staying in Canada
Details about the Inviter/s:
- full name
- address and phone number in Canada
- job title
- whether you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident
- details of your family, such as names and dates of birth of your spouse and dependents, and
- the total number of individuals living in your home, including people you sponsored whose sponsorship is still in effect (this is mandatory).
Together with the invitation letter, the Inviter must also attach a photocopy of their PR card (if a permanent resident), OR a photocopy of the Citizenship card or first page of the Canadian passport (if a Canadian citizen). This is optional but the Inviter can also include photocopies of their children’s passports (information page only) or photocopies of their birth certificates.
