Super Visa Insurance

Citizenship and Immigration Canada has declared that Parents and grandparents will be eligible to apply for what is being called a “super visa effective December 1st, 2011”. In what can be aptly described as a game changer, the Canadian government has announced that effective from December 1, 2011, one may be eligible to apply for Canadian visitor visa under the Parent and Grandparent category and stay for up to two years here without the need to renew your status. This visa category has been named as, well guess it, ‘Parent and Grandparent Super Visa and is now commonly referred to as ‘Super Visa’.

The “super visa” will enable a parent to have a 10 year multiple entry visa. This visa will allow the parent to remain in Canada for up to 2 years at a time but to avail super visa you need to have insurance from a Canadian Insurance company. What is even more exciting is the Immigration department claim that the processing time for this visa would be as short as eight weeks. This is in stark contrast and relief to the current waiting period which has now snowballed to more than seven years.

In this category the should undertake the responsibility of purchasing private Canadian health insurance during their stay in Canada. This is a great opportunity for those individuals aspiring to reunite with their loved parents / grandparents.
