Ottawa updated instructions for super visa applications

On January 12, 2023, the Government of Canada announced that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) updated instructions for the super visa applications. According to the update, the Canadian Government revoked the policy of refusing medical insurance coverage for those paying in installments. The immigration officers should be satisfied that the applicant has obtained sufficient and suitable coverage for their entire year of entry, regardless of payment method. The policy change aims to improve access to the super visa and provide additional assistance for those seeking to visit their family in Canada.
