- provide a written statement from that child or grandchild that he or she will give you financial support,
- have valid Canadian medical insurance coverage for at least one year and

- 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”. 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.
It’s important to choose a policy that gives you sufficient coverage. A basic plan should cover each parent up to $100,000 Canadian and should include benefits such as ambulance expenses, laboratory tests, doctor bills and public hospital rooms.
Flying to Canada as a visitor from another country, your parents are not covered by Canada’s National Health Care program. Moreover, for super visa you can’t have insurance from your domestic health insurance company. When choosing super visa medical insurance for a visit to Canada, it is good idea to purchase from a Canadian insurance company. They know the medical system and are familiar with costs and common health risks. They’re also easier to get in touch with if a medical emergency should arise during the stay of your parents.
This insurance is designed to cover losses arising from sudden and unforeseeable circumstances.It is important that you read and understand your policy as your coverage is subject to certain limitation and exclusions.
