So, you are applying for the Super Visa for your parents or grandparents to come to Canada. They are currently going through the visa application process and they are told they will need Super Visa Insurance to cover their stay while they are in Canada.

Before you start panicking, here are a few things you need to know to make the search for the right travel insurance much easier.

Super Visa insurance is really travel insurance for visitors to Canada. It is called a Super Visa insurance because it is designed to cover medical emergency treatment costs while a Super Visa holder resides in Canada or is on a side-trip in other country, provided that the majority of the insurance coverage period is spent in Canada. The coverage must be for a minimum of $100,000 and the policy must have a minimum duration of one year.

If for some reason, your parents or grandparents are unable to obtain a Visa for Entry to Canada a refund will be provided so long as the reason is beyond their control.

If your family member leaves Canada before the one year is up, you can get a refund on the unused balance.

If their is a preexisting health condition, most insurance carriers are able to provide coverage provided that the condition is stable and your relative(s) will not be travelling against their doctor’s recommendation.
