Super Visa is a long-term, multiple-entry visa for parents and grandparents of permanent residents or Canadian citizens. The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa (Super Visa) is a temporary resident permit that allows parents and grandparents to stay for up to 2 years in Canada per visit. It is valid for up to 10 years.
A regular multiple-entry visa is also valid for up to 10 years, but only allows stays of up to 6 months per visit.
One of the key requirements for obtaining the Super Visa for Canada is insurance. Super Visa applicants must submit proof that they have purchased private medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company which is valid for a minimum of one year and offers a minimum of $100,000 in coverage for health care, hospitalization and repatriation.
On adding deductible on the insurance policy means that you agree to share the expenses in case of a claim. Insurance companies introduced deductibles to avoid a large number of small claims. On the other hand people select deductibles to pay less for insurance.
There are several types of deductible:
Per claim deductible This applies when the customer pays the deductible amount for each separate incident. It is the most common type of deductible among the travel insurance companies
Per policy deductible This implies that the insured must pay the deductible only once during the period of the policy and the rest of the covered expenses are paid by the company.
The key difference is that the super visa allows multiple entry periods lasting up to 2 years. Those travelling on a 10-year multiple-entry visa can only stay for up to six months per entry.
A single-entry super visa is also available. This remains at the discretion of a visa officer.
If your parent / grandparent wants to stay with you for longer period of time without the hassle of going back after 6 months it is advisable to apply Super Visa.
An applicant is eligible for a super visa if they have provided proof of the parent or grandparent relationship to the Canadian citizen or permanent resident; undergone a medical examination and are admissible on health grounds;provided satisfactory evidence of private medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company valid for a minimum period of one year from the date of entry that covers the applicant for health care, hospitalization and repatriation,provides a minimum of $100,000 coverage, and is valid for each entry to Canada and available for review by the examining officer upon request; provided a written and signed promise of financial support (e.g., a letter of invitation) from the host child or grandchild for the entire duration the applicant intends to stay in Canada.
