When should I purchase Visitors to Canada insurance?

Icon

Ideally, you should buy your insurance policy prior to arrival in Canada. Not only certain insurers cover you on your way to Canada, but you also avoid an unnecessary waiting period that applies to policies purchased once you have arrived.

More importantly, by buying your insurance protection before arrival you are not risking your money in case there is a medical emergency within the first few days of landing.

Does Visitors insurance policy cover routine check ups?

Icon

Unfortunately no. Private insurance plans only cover medical emergency treatment costs if you suddenly fall sick or get injured while insured. However, if you have an emergency and require a doctor’s check up, then it is considered an eligible expense and your policy will cover it.
