A super visa is a special type of visa that allows parents and grandparents of Canadian residents to make multiple visits over a 10-year period. Unlike a multiple-entry visa, a super visa allows stays for up to 2 years at a time.
Eligibility for a super visa
In order to qualify for a super visa, the following requirements must be met:
Medical insurance is a requirement for the super visa application. Therefore, you have to buy coverage before beginning your application.
If your application is denied, all premiums will be 100% refunded. Just send the proof of denial.
If your parents or grandparents remain in Canada for more than one year without making any claims, you are also able to refund a portion of the unused premiums.
Peace of mind
Although all Canadian permanent residents and citizens are covered by their provincial government, visitors are not.
Canadians may not realize how expensive it is to receive medical treatment because it is paid for by the government. A single emergency visit can cost more than $900, and a one-day stay in a private hospital room runs more than $3,000!
