Planning to visit, work temporarily, or study in Canada? Choose affordable travel insurance that provides emergency medical and dental benefits for an enjoyable, worry-free stay in Canada.
Travel insurance for visitors to Canada includes protection against the potentially high cost of medical mishaps, like unexpected medical, hospital or dental emergencies for the following travellers:
Tourists visiting Canada
Whether you are seeing the sites or visiting family and friends, the Visitor to Canada Plan is ideal for tourists who want to discover all the wonders of Canada in tranquillity and security. Allianz Global Assistance offers different coverage plans that provide valuable emergency medical and dental benefits designed to fit a wide range of coverage needs and budgets.
Super Visa applicants
Travel medical insurance for visitors to Canada offered by Allianz Global Assistance provides convenient, affordable protection that fully meets the coverage required for Super Visa applicants.
Newly landed immigrants
As a newly landed immigrant, you may be facing a three-month wait before receiving coverage through Canada’s public health care system. For this reason, it is important to apply for government health care immediately upon arrival. Our Visitors to Canada Plan provides the emergency and dental benefits required while waiting to receive access to your Government Health Insurance Plan.
Temporary foreign workers
Depending on the province or territory, temporary foreign workers may need to wait several months before being eligible for their Government Health Insurance Plan (GHIP). If you are soon coming to Canada as a temporary foreign worker and your employer doesn’t offer you coverage, it is highly recommended to purchase a travel insurance plan from an experienced insurance provider such as Allianz Global Assistance.
All international students who study in Canada are required to have health insurance coverage for the duration of their stay. Required coverage includes emergency medical and dental benefits. Need to travel to another province during your stay in Canada? Our Visitors to Canada Plan covers your entire stay within the province you are residing and studying in, and any other province or territory within Canada you may want to visit.
