The instructions on the length of stay determined at the port of entry for holders of a super visa have been updated to reflect the new ministerial instructions that came into force on July 4, 2022.

As of July 4, 2022, if parents and grandparents who possess the temporary resident super visa or letter of introduction have a stamp in their passport with no handwritten date, or if they have no stamp, then the period of authorized stay is 5 years from the date of entry.
