Insurance

United Arab Emirates (UAE) - Insurance


Health insurance abroad is essential for any expat. In addition to expat healthcare insurance rates, insurance providers or online insurance comparison sites can provide life assurance quotes and auto insurance rates to provide you with overseas coverage. However, remember that cheap insurance may not represent the best value for money if you need to make a claim - as an expat you may require specialist expatriate insurance cover abroad.

Insurance is a part of everyday life no matter where you live. Insurance for some things is compulsory, for other things advisable and then insurance that might be seen as important to one person but not the next.

For anyone thinking of moving to the UAE probably the most important insurance would be medical. For Abu Dhabi emirate it is a condition of entry but for the other six emirates it is strongly advised. Life insurance is also very important to protect loved ones if the worst should happen but don’t forget to make a will or you could fall foul of Shariah Law.

Car insurance is compulsory as elsewhere in the world and different levels of cover can be arranged. Insurance for your home and contents, insurance for your yacht, bike or sports goods, there is a policy out there for just about everything.
