Super Visa Insurance
What is a super visa?
A super visa is a visa that grants parents and grandparents the ability to visit their family living in Canada. The advantage of this visa is that it allows multiple visits over a 10-year period, and visits can last up to two years. Thus, the super visa is distinct from the multiple entry visa, which only allows visits of up to six months.

To obtain this visa, you must meet certain criteria, including:
- Be a parent or grandparent of a permanent resident of Canada or a Canadian citizen.

- Prove that your child/grandchild meets a minimum income threshold.
- Provide a financial support commitment from your child/grandchild.
- Undergo a medical exam and forward the medical report form completed by the physician.
