Travel Insurance Coverage Options

Depending on what is most important for you to have covered, there may be a plan better tailored to your needs:

Schengen Visa Insurance

If you intend to visit Schengen countries in Europe, you would need a Schengen visa; this requires compliant Schengen visa insurance. J visa insurance may not provide coverage in Schengen countries. You can make an instant purchase of the Schengen travel insurance and immediately print the visa letter to present to the consulate.

Evacuation and Repatriation Plan

Many J visa holders get medical insurance through their sponsoring organization. While it may provide excellent medical coverage, it does not provide the emergency medical evacuation and repatriation of remains coverage that is required to meet the minimum requirements of J visa insurance, set by the U.S. Department of State. Standalone evacuation and repatriation plan can be a low cost solution.

J1 Group Insurance

If the sponsoring or sending organization has five or more exchange visitors participating it is possible to purchase J1 visa group medical insurance, which would generally be cheaper than individual insurance plans. For very large groups, it is possible to make specific arrangements for easy administration of members.

Work and Travel USA Insurance

A work and travel exchange visitor program provides an opportunity for foreign students to experience life in the U.S. as well as find temporary work in the U.S. They are allowed to stay in the U.S. for up to four months during summer vacation. Small group insurance is available for groups of 5 or more. For very large groups, custom products are available designed specifically for a given organization.
