  • Tips for Visitor Visa of Parents


    It is quite easy to get Visitor Visa for parents. If you provide enough documents from your side and your parent show proper documents from their side, usually they will get Visa.

    What you (sponsor) need to provide?

    • Last Year’s Income-tax assessment notice or T4 for yourself

    • Last Year’s Income-tax assessment notice of T4 for your spouse (please provide this even though you have more than enough income, they sometimes asks for this even though you might be earning 100,000 per year!)

    • Current years latest pay slip for yourself
      Current years latest pay slip for your spouse

    • Photocopy of your lading papers and passport

    • One of your utility bills, just for showing your place of resident

    • One sponsor letter (not necessarily be notorized, but you can do it. (Format for sponsor letter is given below)

    What your parent should provide?

    • Their income statements

    • If farmer – copies of 7/12 and 8A (or whatever)

    • Copies of property they own

    • Job records if any.

    • Passport (of course!)

    What is best method for applying?

    Sending all papers and passport by post! For many people this sounds weird but it is true. For senior citizens Canadian government takes lot of care and they are not suppose to visit the embassy. They can, but it is not required and anyway not going to change their decision. So it is my humble advise to send application by post.
