Staying away from your loved ones for a long time is one of the hardest things to do when you are staying abroad. That is why the Canadian Government implemented the Super Visa back in 2011. It allows the Parents and Grandparents of citizens and Permanent Residents of Canada to stay in the country for up to 2 years (multiple entries) without re-applying. Some can even last up to 10 years, depending upon the passport of the person.
One of the most important factors needed to apply for a Super Visa is to have proof of Canadian Medical Insurance. The term should be at least one year and have a minimum coverage of $100,000 to include healthcare, hospitalization and repatriation.
What are the Requirements for Getting a Super Visa?
- The insurance must be purchased from a Canadian insurance company before the arrival in the country
- The validity of the insurance must be at least one year from the date of entry
- The coverage must be a minimum of $100,000 and cover healthcare, hospitalization and repatriation
- You must carry proof of the insurance being paid and no quotes will be allowed
Apart from these main requirements, you will be asked to produce a set of documents while applying for the Super Visa insurance:
- Invitation letter from the family member staying in Canada, who’s a permanent resident or a citizen
- Your primary destination in Canada and your relationship with the applicant
- Financial document of your children or grandchildren to show their minimum income
- The documents should also include proof of how they would support you financially while you are in Canada
- Your gender and the birth date of the oldest traveler
- The date you would like the policy to begin (probably the date you would arrive in Canada)
- Information on any pre-existing medical conditions that you have and your contact information
Getting an Emergency Health Insurance is extremely necessary while applying for Super Visa, and it will cost you quite a lot depending upon the existing medical conditions and your age. Failure to provide any of these documents or providing false information may lead to rejection of your Super Visa. All these can seem extremely stressful and that’s why its important to consult an insurance advisor for the same. They will assist you with comparing the policies, explaining the process and documentation and finding a suitable policy with maximum benefits and appropriate coverage.
