Uniting parents and grandparents to unite with family is a precious dream for many. If you are keen on inviting parents or grandparents and interested in applying for the Canadian super visa, here are some of the things to take care of.

Understanding the Canadian Super Visa

The super visa introduced by the Canadian government was introduced in 2011. It allows parents and grandparents of Canadian Citizens and Canadian Permanent Residents to enter Canada for up to two years at a time (without having to renew their status). The Canadian super visa is a multiple entry visa and is valid for up to 10 years.

What is the difference between the regular visitor visa and super visa?

While a regular visitor visa only entails the visitor a one-time entry into Canada the visitor must apply for a visa each time they plan to travel to Canada. Normally, your visitor visa is valid for up to six months. If one wants to extend, the visitor must apply for an extension and pay the requisite fees.

On the other hand, a super visa saves your parents and grandparents time and money that would otherwise be spent on applying for visas and extensions. As a Super visa applicant and recipient, both the holders and their families benefit from travel flexibility giving them the opportunity to travel to Canada on short notice to attend family events or assist during emergencies as required.

How can I get help during super visa application process?

Your friendly insurance provider can help you at every step of the way with your Super Visa application process. And also update you about processing times, and other relevant resources.

What are the eligibility needs to qualify for the super visa application?

Your Canadian super visa is valid for one whole year from the day of entry into Canada. It also provides a minimum of $100,000 coverage; and covers healthcare, hospitalization, and repatriation.

Get in touch with your insurance provider to get an idea of the right documents to be presented for approval so you can apply your parents’ or grandparents’ super visa easily.
