Expatriate insurance

Expatriate insurance policies are designed to cover financial and other losses incurred by expatriates while living and working in a country other than one's own.

Insurance should be arranged prior to relocating to a new country or destination. Policies will generally cover the duration of your stay and can be purchased on a 6-month to annual basis. It is important to purchase this insurance from a reputable company.

The most common insurance policies purchased by expatriates include:

  • Personal property
  • Automobile insurance
  • Personal liability insurance
  • Emergency evacuation
  • Medical and dental coverage
  • Short-term travel insurance

In some cases, specialty insurance can be purchased for high-risk areas of the world that provide coverage for:

  • War and terrorism
  • Kidnap and ransom
  • Casualty insurance
