Super Visa Insurance
Like many foreign-born Canadians, you may have parents or grandparents still living in your home country, whom you miss dearly. You likely want to introduce them to their grandkids or your spouse, show them your home, or proudly show off your adopted country. But does Canada allow these visits, and how long can parents and grandparents stay?
Happily, the federal government does allow Canadian citizens with qualifying parents and grandparents to visit for an extended period — six months or more — and provides an application process by which to obtain a “super visa” to get them here. The big difference from a regular visitor visa? With a super visa, your visitor can stay up to two years in a single visit, and travel back and forth for 10 years.
If your parents or grandparents visit for less than six months, then they can apply for a regular visitor’s visa instead.
Private health insurance that meets the Super Visa application requirements must cover healthcare, hospitalization and repatriation (return to home country in the case of death) costs. Coverage must be continuous during the entire length of stay in Canada, meaning that there can be no breaks or gaps of coverage while in Canada during use of the visa. The visitors to Canada insurance offered here by Canada’s top travel insurance companies meet these requirements.
So that we can be extremely competitive and unbiased, we have compiled an exhaustive selection from all of Canada’s Super Visa insurance providers – we currently have more policies to choose from than any other online broker in Canada! And, by regulation, we have the exact same prices that are offered by the insurance companies themselves, or other brokers for that matter.
