What is Super Visa Insurance?
No one is ever fully ready for an unexpected illness or medical emergency. Traveling abroad can make it even more difficult to find the care you need if the unexpected happens.
Super Visa Insurance is designed specifically for parents and grandparents of Canadian immigrants. Standard Canadian visitor visas permit travellers to stay in the country for up to 6 months. Super Visa Insurance allows visits lasting up to 2 years and is valid for 10 years with the possibility of multiple entries.
Obtaining a minimum of $100,000 in health coverage for at least a year from a Canadian insurer is mandatory to apply for Super Visa Insurance. Super Visa Insurance acts as protection from financial hardship in the event of a medical emergency. This is ideal for individuals who won’t have access to Canadian public healthcare. Dental care and repatriation coverage are commonly included as well.
What is a Canadian Super Visa?
A Super Visa lets parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or residents stay in Canada for up to two years at a time. This is a multi-entry visa that allows you to enter the country multiple times for a period of up to 10 years.
What are the Super Visa insurance requirements?
Super Visa Insurance eligibility requirements include:
- Applicant must be a parent or grandparent of a Canadian permanent resident or citizen
- Applicant must provide a signed letter from their child or grandchild (inviter) that includes: list of people in the inviter’s household, a promise from the inviter to provide financial support to the applicant during their stay, and proof that the inviter is a Canadian permanent resident or citizen
- Applicant must obtain at least $100,000 in health insurance coverage for a minimum of a year from the entry date
- Super Visa Insurance must be secured outside Canada and from a Canadian company
- Super Visa Insurance must be paid in full before entry
How much does Super Visa insurance cost
Similarly to other insurance products, Super Visa Insurance is influenced by the age and medical history of the applicant. As you add or increase your coverage within your basic or premium plan, the price will rise. On average, a grandparent below 75 years of age will pay about $1,500 per year. However, if you are traveling with a companion, you may bundle your plans together for a reduced cost.
What does Super Visa Insurance cover?
Having medical and travel insurance is a requirement for obtaining a Canadian Super Visa. It’s to ensure that you are covered – no matter what.
Super Visa insurance covers you and your belongings in the case of many issues or emergencies, including:
- Trip delays
- Lost baggage
- Ambulance services
- Medical emergencies
- and more…
Super Visa Insurance helps offset the costs of expensive medical care in the chance that you are injured or become ill while abroad.
How much coverage do I need?
To be eligible for a Super Visa, your insurance policy needs to at least cover medical, hospitalization, and repatriation. But you can also choose to sign up for more coverage if you want to feel more protected. The more coverage you get, the more money you save if you are faced with an expensive medical emergency.

Types of Super Visa Insurance in Canada
Super Visa Insurance is designed to cover emergency medical expenses that visitors would otherwise have to pay out-of-pocket. The higher your coverage, the more protected you will be. There are basic and premium plans but coverage will vary amongst providers.
Both types of plans provide the minimum required $100,000 in medical coverage.
Basic Super Visa Insurance
This provides basic coverage for prescription medicine, dental care, and repatriation. If you have a pre-existing condition, coverage is rarely included in a basic plan. If you return to your home country while the policy is still active, it will be voided.
Premium Super Visa Insurance
This provides higher coverage for prescription drugs, dental care, and repatriation. In addition, a much wider variety of prescription medicine is covered. If you have a pre-existing condition, it can be included in premium plans. You can also choose a plan that will stay in effect until the expiry date even if you return to your home country.
Planning Multiple Trips?
Buy a plan that doesn’t expire if you return to your home country to avoid buying several policies.
Taking A Short Trip?
Some insurers will give partial refunds if no claims were made and the insured individual’s stay in Canada was short.
Are You A Risk Taker?
You can choose to increase your deductibles to reduce the cost of your Super Visa Insurance if you feel secure in your health condition.
Travelling with a Companion
You may be eligible for a discount if you travel with your spouse or in a larger group. After getting your quote, check if you are eligible for such a discount.
