Understanding the 2024 Super Visa Income Requirements

The Super Visa program, launched by the Canadian government, offers a unique opportunity for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents to spend extended periods in Canada. With the recent updates in 2024, there are new income requirements to be met. Our experts at Immigration Nation will delve into these updates, ensuring you understand the criteria and process thoroughly.


The Super Visa allows eligible parents and grandparents to stay in Canada for up to five years per entry, with a potential two-year extension, making it an attractive alternative to the limited Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). This visa not only fosters family reunification but also provides a sense of security for families who want to be together for longer durations.

In 2024, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has revised the income thresholds, marking an increase of approximately 6.8% from the previous year. These changes reflect the growing cost of living and aim to ensure that sponsors can adequately support their visiting family members.
