Short Term Immigration Coverage and Travel Health Insurance for Visitors to the US
Global Travel Insurance.com has access to an excellent visitor health insurance plan for non-US citizens in need of emergency international travel insurance while visiting the USA. Unfortunately, as a new resident of the United States, you may not be eligible for many domestic medical insurance programs. The majority of travel insurance companies require that you be a resident of the United States for 6 to 12 months before they allow you to purchase their coverage. In the interim, you may be exposed to financial burden if an unforeseen medical event should occur.
The IMG plans below work very well if you are needing emergency medical insurance to satisfy the new Trump rules for visitors to the United States. You will receive a confirmation of coverage from IMG with link to a visa letter that you can download.
Travel Medical Options for Visitors to the USA
If you are visiting the United States, it is vital that you obtain a high quality emergency medical insurance plan as the health costs in the USA are quite expensive. It is critical that you purchase coverage before you visit the country and due to recent announcements from President Trump, it may even be required. Note that no-one can say if one plan or another is approved by the US government to meet their vague requirements at this time.
