Choosing a plan for Super Visa applicants


The Visitors to Canada Plan option offered by Allianz Global Assistance is ideal for anyone visiting Canada as a Super Visa applicant, temporary worker, landed immigrant or tourist visiting family and friends.

A Super Visa offers Canadian and permanent resident families the opportunity to reunite with a parent or grandparent who live outside of Canada for up to two consecutive years and for the duration of ten years. As part of the Super Visa application process, applicants must confirm they have emergency medical travel insurance coverage in place for at least one year after arriving in Canada. Canadian residents may purchase medical insurance on behalf of their visiting family member(s) who are part of the Super Visa program, and should be aware that if they have sponsored their stay, are responsible for their medical bills in the event that they are unable to pay. This is one of the reasons why it is essential for a Super Visa applicant to be covered with the right medical insurance plan for the duration of their stay.

What is required for a Super Visa application?

  • Minimum emergency medical insurance coverage of $100,000 CAD, valid for at least one year from the date of entry.
  • Proof that the medical insurance premium has been paid.
  • Provide a signed letter from your child or grandchild, inviting you to Canada and a promise that they will be able to provide financial support. For more details on the Super Visa application process, please visit Immigration and Citizenship Canada.

What are some of the benefits offered with the Visitors to Canada Plan for Super Visa applicants?

  • $100,000 in medical coverage for the duration of a year.
  • No medical questionnaires required to obtain a quote.
  • No deductibles, which means no additional costs when filing a valid claim.
  • The option to return to your home country for a visit before coming back to Canada without cancelling coverage.
  • Partial refund of your policy for unused days if you return to your home country earlier than planned.
