I am an Iranian citizen and I have just graduated and am working with an opt visa in California. All of the insurance companies I've searched have banned Iranian citizens because of sanctions against my country. Do you know if there are any plans that do not discriminate based on nationality?
Thank you for your help.
Thank you for contacting us at American Visitor Insurance for your US visitor health insurance
needs! This is one of the few plans which will allow purchase by Iranian citizens. You should put your address in Iran as your "home country" address; but you can use a US billing address if you choose or need to.
It also has an excellent sports rider option that covers wide variety of adventure sports including collegiate sports, mountain climbing, skiing etc.
