    By gar

    For faster family reunification, Citizenship and Immigration Canada has introduced Super Visas for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents in Canada.

    Previously, wait times for parental sponsorship applications took up to eight years to process. The new Super Visa can be issued within eight weeks.

    The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa is a multiple-entry visa for a parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada
    - It is valid for up to 10 years
    - Family members can stay up to 24 months at a time

    Why do you need travel insurance for a Super Visa?

    Applicants for the Super Visa must provide evidence that they have Canadian medical insurance coverage for at least one year for a minimum of $100,000 coverage. This is a requirement that must be filled before applying for a Super Visa.

    Unexpected medical emergency in a foreign country can cost thousands of dollars. A travel Insurance plan can help you save on

    Emergency medical attention
    Emergency dental treatment
    Expenses related to death
    Emergency medical return home
    Additional expenses for meals and hotel
    Visit to bedside if travelling alone
    Childcare expenses
    Coverage for paramedical services
    Return of children
    Ambulance transportation
    Trip Break

    When applying for Canadian medical insurance coverage an applicant must truthfully answer all questions in the application. Failure to do so can invalidate the policy. If there is a medical question that is unclear, the applicants doctor should be consulted to correctly answer the question.

    Once a visitor obtains their insurance it is also important to follow the rules of their insurance policy to make claim. Not following the rules and procedures can invalidate a claim so it is important to read the insurance policy and get all your questions answered before you travel.

    Any travel agent can get you travel insurance, but only a qualified licensed insurance advisor can ensure the policy you buy will give you the complete care and dedicated service you will need in an emergency.
