In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the direction from the government advising Canadians not to travel, we have temporarily paused all new travel policy sales. For more information, visit the RSA FAQ page.

We encourage you to regularly visit the Government of Canada’s Travel Advice and Advisories page for the most up-to-date information.

What is the Super Visa?

The Super Visa is an option for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to visit their family in Canada. These individuals may be eligible to apply for the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa to visit their family in Canada for up to 2 years without the need to renew their status.

What are the requirements for a Super Visa application?

To obtain a Parent or Grandparent Super Visa for Canada, applicants must have valid emergency medical insurance. Super Visa applications need to provide proof that they have private emergency medical insurance valid for a minimum of 1 year, from a Canadian insurance company and that it:

  • Covers emergency medical care, hospitalization and repatriation
  • Provides a minimum coverage of $100,000
  • Is valid for each entry to Canada and available for review by a port of entry officer
