Super Visa is a parents and grandparents visa, starting from December 1st, 2011. The Canadian Government introduced a new Visa for Parents and Grandparents to visit in Canada. Visitors who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada, but their children or grandchildren are either citizens or permanent residents can visit their families in Canada and can spend time and enjoy themselves with their families. This is a long-term, multiple entry visa valid for up to 10 years. The parent can visit their family in Canada for up to two years per visit without the need to renew their status. This new Super Visa is reuniting families much quicker. In earlier days it used to take 8 years but now it may take only 8 weeks. It further helps your parents and grandparents to visit you on a short time notice to help you in pregnancy situations.
Super-visa is beneficial for longer visits in Canada. They are multi-entry, long-term visas and have added requirements not required for an ordinary visitor visa. One of the requirements is the minimum income threshold for the Canadian child or grandchild. It is also known as LICO (Low Income Cut Off). Also required are a written promise of financial support, proof of family in Canada, immigration medical examination, and private health insurance purchased from a Canadian company.
Canadian government mandated along with the super visa, the requirements of having valid medical insurance in effect when entering Canada.
International travel does involve a lot of planning. Health-related planning is a very important section of overall planning. The Canadian government has outlined medical insurance as mandatory because it is a proven fact that with the change of continent, a lot changes with the person’s health. A person can be exposed to extreme climates, weather uncertainties, confusion with change in driving habits can lead to sudden and unpredictable accidents, and many more uncertain factors. All these changes can quickly add a heavy financial burden and stress on the visitor’s family in terms of many medical bills.
Super Visa medical insurance protects the visitor and visitor’s family against the cost of medical bills, in case they need any sort of emergency medical attention or treatment. Here are some examples: medical appliances (wheelchair, braces, crutches), diagnostic services (x-rays, laboratory testing), a prescription medication for 30 days, private nursing, ambulance transportation, professional services, expenses related to death, bedside companion, return of dependent children, dental accidents, etc. This could be caused by many factors such as an accident or an illness that occurs while they are in Canada. Such expenses are covered under the super visa insurance plan and help visitors and families from undergoing any unrequired financial stresses.
This health insurance coverage, also known as super visa insurance, must be effective upon arrival into Canada for at least one 1 year. However, this is required to be planned and arranged prior to their arrival in Canada or they won’t be permitted to enter the country.
The direct requirement of insurance coverage is explained on the Canadian government official website as follows:

Sometimes when we are applying for the super visa, we give tentative travel dates to acquire the super visa insurance. It is important to update your super visa insurance company if you do not receive your super visa 15 days before your tentative travel date. Keep in mind that if you do not inform your insurance company and change your travel date, your super visa insurance will still become effective from the same tentative date you provided before and not from your changed date. This will cause issues at your entry and over all valid number of days will be affected as well. The first day of insurance protection policy should be the day when your parents or grandparents come to Canada. The one year or 365 days coverage should start from that day. This ensures the best use of your policy.
Also, just to be informative, all your medical and / or emergency medication expenses will be in Canadian dollars should you need to have any.
After you have filled out the application, you should get the policy emailed to you within the same day. The information required to complete the application process is: Birthday, Effective date, Medical history, Prescription drugs, Medical conditions, Deductible, First/Last name (has to match the passport), your Canadian address/phone number/email, and payment method(Visa, Master Card, or American Express).
The cost of the super visa insurance depends on the amount of the deductible you choose. The deductible can vary from $0 to $10k. The higher the deductible, the lower will be your initial insurance cost but you will get refund calculated as: Total claim amount minus deductible in case you have a claim. For example; if you have a $5000 claim with $0 deductible policy, the insurance company will pay $5000. If you have a $5000 claim with $1000 deductible policy, the insurance company will pay $4000.
We assure you to find best deductible and claims match for your need. Call us or send us the form to know the further details.
If a Super Visa request is denied for any reason, you are qualified to receive 100% of the premium paid for the visa insurance protection. We process the refunds as soon as the proof of visa denial is sent to us.
If you decide to travel back to home country before your anticipated back date, we process the pro-rata refunds. It may take a while as you will submit the proof of travel back and then it will be processed. Sorry, without proof it cannot be processed. Please keep in mind that there should not be any claim on the policy to refund on pro-rata basis.
As long as the effective date of super visa in not met; we can practically help you to change deductible. It cannot be done once the policy has come into effect. Inform us the minute you decide to change the deductible.
Check with us if this certain condition applies to you. It will increase your premium of the super visa insurance if you want to cover the pre-existing condition and if it is available to be covered in the policy. Please note: In case you have a pre-existing condition, but it is not bought against and covered in the super visa insurance policy, your claim against this condition will be denied.
