The Visitors to Canada Plan option offered by Allianz Global Assistance is ideal for anyone who requires emergency medical health care coverage while visiting Canada as a Super Visa applicant, temporary worker, landed immigrant or tourist.
To help you better understand the Super Visa requirements, we have outlined some answers to important questions you may be asking yourself.
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. It’s also a visa that provides multi-trip entries for up to 10 years.
As part of the application process, applicants must confirm they have:
- A minimum of $100,000 CAD in emergency medical travel insurance coverage in place for at least one year after arriving in Canada.
- Proof that the medical insurance premium has been paid.
- A child or grandchild's signed letter of invitations to Canada, with a pormise of financial support.
For more details on the application process, please visit Immigration and Citizenship Canada.
For a full and updated list of requirements, please visit the Government of Canada’s website.
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.
The cost varies according to the applicant’s age, the policy length, medical history, and the amount of coverage. For couples, purchasing an insurance plan together may be cheaper than buying as individuals. Visit our booking path
or call us at 1-844-310-1578 from North America / 1-519-514-0355 anywhere else.
Parents and grandparents can still apply, however, please note that there are specific rules on who qualifies for immediate family members. Please be sure to visit the Government of Canada’s website
for more information.
