Canadian super visa holders can stay five years per entry effective July 4, 2022

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) recently announced two changes for super visa holders. The new rules will become effective on July 4, 2022.

One of the changes is that super visa holders can stay up to five years after entering Canada. Currently, the length of stay allowed per entry is two years. Also, with the new rules, super visa holders in Canada can extend their stays by up to two years; thus, the maximum stay within the country can be as long as seven years upon the initial entry into Canada.

The second new feature is that international medical insurance providers can insure super visa applicants, with the names of such providers to be released later. Presently only Canadian insurance companies can offer insurance policies.
