With a 21 Century’s Visitors to Canada medical emergency insurance policy will cover uninterrupted flight (including stop-over / connecting flight, if you are not leaving the airport) on your way to Canada. The coverage is provided, if your arrival and effective dates are the same, and the policy expires by the time you land in your country of origin or permanent residence, provided that the expiry date and the date you land back home match.
Unlike other Canadian medical insurance providers, 21 Century has per policy deductible, which does not require you to pay the set amount of deductible in case of any claim you make other than the first one.
Policy Wording is an official document issued by the 21 Century, outlining and explaining your coverage benefits, eligibility requirements, exclusions and limitations applicable to your insurance as well as instructions on how to request a refund and submit a claim.
Read this document carefully before you purchase the product in order to clarify any confusions you might have in regards to the medical emergency coverage 21 Century provides for Visitors to Canada.

– Policy is purchased / activated before or after arrival in Canada and insured person failed to notify us when they have actually arrived, unless the arrival date matches the effective date of the insurance policy.
– Insured person requests to change the deductible amount, sum insured and/or add or exclude Stable Pre-existing Conditions Coverage, if renewing the policy with no gap in coverage.

The 21 Century Monthly Payment policy fully satisfies the Super Visa requirement for the proof of medical emergency insurance set by the Canadian Government (CIC).
In order to buy the 21 Century Monthly Payment insurance for Super Visa, you will need to complete an application form (link is below) with some basic personal information of the person to be insured. Once it is done, our Insurance Advisors will contact you and send you the Pre-Authorized Monthly Payment form for you to fill out. This form is used by the 21 Century to collect monthly payments for your insurance coverage.
When you are purchasing the Super Visa Insurance Monthly Plan from the 21 Century, you will be paying 2 (two) monthly insurance premiums (out of 12 premiums total for 1 year) plus a $50 policy administration fee. The 2 (two) monthly insurance premiums are accepted by the 21 Century as a security deposit and cover the LAST 2 (two) actual months of the insurance period.
As you might not be sure of the exact arrival date until the government makes its decision regarding the Super Visa, you should NOT activate the policy right away, unless the person to be insured is in Canada.
If the person to be insured is already in Canada, then the insurance MUST be activated at the moment of purchase and the payment will be 3 (three) monthly premiums, which cover the first and the last two months of the insurance coverage period.
The Effective Date and Arrival Date on the policy should match the date you are indicating as your “intended” arrival date on your visa application, provided that the person to be insured is not in Canada at that moment.
Leave the insurance policy in a “Pending” status until the visa decision is reached. No further action is required until the government approves or rejects your application.Apply for Monthly Payment Option
Once the Super Visa is approved, contact us to pay your third monthly premium in order to Activate your insurance policy and set the Effective Date for the insurance coverage to begin once the actual arrival date has been determined. The 3rd (third) monthly premium is used to cover the first actual month the Super Visa holder is in Canada.
