Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Customer
Hello
Customer
No text is fine
Customer
I would like to get my my son in-law here on a vistors visa
Customer
Because my daughter will be giving birth in a few months and we would all like him to be here fir the birth and spend a little time afterwards

Debra, Expert

Please note that I am working from my computer and not actually texting. If you don’t answer back for a while I may not be online when you do but I will never desert you and will check back often. As well, as I am working from home it is possible that I will be interrupted but I will always return back as soon as I can.

Finally, although the site offers a call option I personally do not take calls but just work online. Some find this confusing as it looks like the offer is coming from me but that is just how the site presents the offer and it really isn’t coming from me. Some of the other experts do take calls and so you are very welcome to request a call on this post and an expert may take it. They will have the benefit of reading our exchange which should work out very well for everyone involved!

Customer
I cant afford the call, would rather do the online

Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Here is a link to the information that you will need:

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/visit-canada/apply-visitor-visa.html

Your son-in-law is going to have to show strong ties to back home. This can include a job, a home, assets, family, ties to the community etc.

Does that help as a starting point?

Customer
I've already been on the site. But anothet question i had was that i noticed the account statement part for him is optional to add with application. If i provide the means to take care of him during the stay is that acceptable
Customer
as well if he got approved for a visitor visa, could a permanent resident visa be applied for during his stay? Seeing as they are both legally married
img

Debra, Expert

Yes if you are paying all his expenses and can show that you can this will work.

After he enters they can apply for spousal sponsorship from inside of Canada.

Customer
That is really good to hear, another question i had (sorry to be a bother) is . For a super visa do you have to be a grandparent/parent of a citizen living in canada?
img

Debra, Expert

Yes you do.

Customer
As for the medical insurance coverage, with the regular visitors visa is that a must? Or is that for the super visa?
Customer
as well give or take how long does it usually take from visa application submission to approval time? If approved
Customer
Especially with covid going on how much longer could someone expect
img

Debra, Expert

The medical coverage is for the supervisa but he sure better have private insurance.

It will take over on

Customer
private insurance secured in canada before arrival?
Customer
Do i have to have a plane ticket purchased before an application is put in? Or can it be done afterward?
img

Debra, Expert

No private insurance secured at home.  No you don't have to buy the plane ticket before the application is put in because that would be too risky in case it

Customer
Is the private insurance a requirement?
img

Debra, Expert

Well if he ends up in the hospital the costs will be astronomical. So it would be exceedingly negligent and in fact reckless to enter Canada without proper private health insurance.

Customer
Ok so he should get private health insurance from his home country?
img

Debra, Expert

Yes. He needs travel insurance for medical coverage, just like if you were going to go to the US you would make sure you had private health coverage in case you got sick there.

Customer

Customer
Am i the one who would have to file the application or my son in law? Because the answers im getting online are a bit confusing
img

Debra, Expert

I just replied on your other post and thanks for starting it.

Customer
Would my 2020 tax return/ t4 slip be ok as proof of income? Or do you think the embassy would rather have a bank statement from the last 6 months.
Customer
I have no poverty coming in but its used for bills so would they want to see a certain amount in my account. If i plan to attach that to the invitation letter
img

Debra, Expert

Yes that would be good proof.

Customer
I have money coming in* sorry for the typo
Customer
Ok So 2020 t4 and tax return should be good?
img

Debra, Expert

Yes for sure.

Customer
Do you think it would make more sense to put a longer visit date on the invitation letter than a short one ? For example 4 months conpared to 2 weeks
Customer
Cause im being told its more likely to get approaved if you put a short visitation date. But i look at it as , it doesn't matter if you put 2 weeks compared to 4 months, seeing as vistora visas usually span from 6-8 months. But this is word of mouth from just a regular person
img

Debra, Expert

6 to 8 months is very long and they rarely would allow you in for more than six months. I think you should put in a reasonable length of time.

Customer
Do you think putting 2 months is reasonable, cause im looking at wether or not an extension would be approved within a short time
Customer
does the 6 months mean, you can travel back and forth in the six months. Or you have six months of travel time you can use over a period of time
Customer
Like if i leave for a month i have 5 months left i can use but don't have to use it with in the 5 months?
img

Debra, Expert

It is for one visit so why don't you put something like two months and certainly not more than six.
