Travel insurance for Egyptians abroad

A large number of Egyptians travel overseas both for work as well as for leisure. Egypt also has a diaspora close to 5 million strong. While most Eygptian migrants are in Arab countries like Libya, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar and the UAE, a good number of Egyptian expatriates are also in Europe (notably in Italy), Australia as well as in the United States and Canada.
This large diaspora retains strong ties with Egypt and they often have family visit them overseas. Egyptians traveling to Europe should buy travel insurance as required for the Schengen visa. Egyptians traveling to the US should also buy adequate visitor medical insurance given the high cost of healthcare in the United States. Customers can compare different visitor medical insurance plans and buy the best plan for their needs at American visitor insurance.
