What is the requirement of super visa insurance?
The government of Canada, since 2011, has made it stress-free for parents and grandparents travelling from other countries to visit their grandchildren or children in Canada and stay for up to two years at a time through the Super Visa. Whether it’s your grandchildren’s birthday or your child’s graduation ceremony, whatever the occasion, the country’s government ensures that your entry and stay in the country is hassle-free by helping you avoid any complications that might occur with a regular visitor visa. The Super Visa is valid for ten years, and parents and grandparents can enter and leave the country multiple times as they wish without the need for reapplying.
If you are a parent or a grandparent looking to apply for Super Visa insurance, below-mentioned are the requirements for obtaining one. The Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has a list of Super Visa insurance eligibility and conditions from the parents and grandparents end, such as:
Obtaining a letter of invitation from their grandchildren or children:
The child or grandchild must be a permanent resident of the country or a Canadian citizen, and they must provide a letter to the IRCC mentioning:

Suppose your grandparents or parents decide to visit you during the holiday season. In that case, they must apply for Super Visa insurance to ensure they are taken care of in an unfortunate event. Additionally, suppose they decide to stay for less than six months and travel from a country that is visa-exempt. In that case, all they require is an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) from the IRCC. For further information on Super Visa insurance Brampton, please do not hesitate to contact Rai Rupinder.
