Schengen Travel Insurance: Health Care for Visitors
Your insurance for your visit abroad
A Schengen travel insurance plan offers your visitors from abroad a safe stay in Switzerland, and the Schengen states. The insurance plan protects visitors from the high costs of illness or accident during their stay and is a prerequisite for a visa. You and your guests can enjoy a trouble-free stay – with a Schengen travel insurance plan from Allianz Global Assistance.
A sum insured of CHF 50,000 is necessary to obtain a visa (Switzerland or Schengen states).
Citizens from some countries, such as Brazil, do not need a visa, but still require travel insurance. Your guests can then move freely in the Schengen area. With this type of medical expenses insurance from Allianz Global Assistance, your guests can get coverage starting at a low sum insured for a small premium.
Since regulations can often change, it is better to contact the appropriate embassy or consulate. You can also find additional information on the website of the Federal Office for Migration.
To obtain a visa for Switzerland or the other Schengen states, sickness and accident insurance with a sum insured of at least CHF 50,000.- is necessary. It is important that coverage extends to the whole Schengen area and is valid for at least 180 days with a low deductible.
With Allianz Global Assistance, you will find a Schengen travel insurance plan that exactly meets these requirements. Guests who do not need a visa for their visit can take out travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance with a sum insured of just CHF 10'000.
