United Arab Emirates Travel Insurance Requirements

As of November 7, 2022, the United Arab Emirates lifted all Covid-19 related entry requirements, including the longstanding travel insurance requirement.

Squaremouth’s UAE Travel Insurance Recommendations

Squaremouth recommends travelers visiting UAE buy a travel insurance policy with at least $100,000 in Emergency Medical coverage and at least $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage. This coverage is reimbursement-based, meaning the traveler is typically required to pay their medical expenses upfront and then file a claim for reimbursement when they return home.

In addition to these medical benefits, most travel insurance policies are comprehensive and include a variety of other benefits, without increasing the cost of a policy. This includes coverage for travel delays and lost or delayed luggage.

Travelers visiting the UAE also have the option to insure their trip costs under the Trip Cancellation benefit. This benefit can reimburse all of their prepaid and non-refundable trip payments if they need to cancel due to an illness or injury, inclement weather, or terrorist incident, among other events.
