Canada is an attractive country that offers multiple opportunities for immigration and professional success. Despite its freezing winter, many people from all over the world want to try their luck there to study, work, be an au pair, invest, take a language trip or, quite simply, to visit the country. As the visa for immigration to Canada will not be issued without an insurance contract, here are some tips that will help you choose your travel insurance according to your visa.
Travel insurance for sightseeing
If you are a French, Swiss or Belgian national, you will not need a visa to be able to make a tailor-made trip to Canada on condition that this does not exceed three months. To stay in the country, you will only need an eTA and your passport. Conditions are different for tourists from other countries, so it is recommended to check with the embassy in your home country to find out a little more on the subject. Whatever the length of your getaway in Canada, it is recommended that you take out travel insurance. Chapka’s 24-hour-a-day travel insurance contract will cover you in the event of a luggage problem or for medical expenses, repatriation, cancellation, etc. during your stay in Canada.
Insurance for a Working Holiday Visa
For young people aged 17 to 35 who wish to go to work and travel to Canada, the visas intended for them are the Working Holiday Visa or the Working Holiday Visa. These types of visas are intended to allow students and young workers to discover Canada and travel while having the possibility of financing their project by working there. One of the essential points to take into account when planning to go to Canada on a Working Holiday Visa is choosing an insurance that will cover you during your trip. Moreover, this one is obligatory.
As stated on the Canadian Embassy website, your travel insurance should cover you at a minimum for hospitalization, illness and repatriation.
