In most countries of the world, medical services for foreigners are quite expensive, so it is important to have a health insurance policy while abroad. To protect themselves from risks, travelers who are just planning to leave Ukraine should purchase a document online or at an insurance agent's office before traveling. What should those who find themselves outside of the country without insurance or whose policy has expired should do? Let's talk further.


Is it possible to take out an insurance policy while abroad?


Most Ukrainian insurance companies allow you to take out travel insurance only during your stay in Ukraine. This is done to prevent fraud where people simply buy a policy when they are sick.

A limited number of agents allow you to issue a policy from abroad. However, keep in mind that in such cases the policy becomes valid only a few days after the purchase.

The good news is that Ukrainians can purchase an insurance policy while abroad on the Visit Ukraine portal.


When might it be necessary to buy an insurance policy abroad?


- When you stayed abroad longer than the planned time - the previous insurance has already expired, so you need to get a new one.

- During the stay outside the country, the validity period of the annual policy has expired.

- To increase the list of risks covered by the insurance - for example, change the usual insurance to one that includes protection against the consequences of accidents during extreme sports, etc.

How to receive payment in case of an insurance accident abroad?


You should also not worry about the possibility of receiving payments in the event of an insurance event, because the state of war did not affect these processes in any way. Ukrainian insurance companies are faced with insurance cases almost every day and return funds to their clients.

It is also not necessary to come to Ukraine to apply for payment. You can do everything remotely and get money on your hryvnia card.


An insurance policy is a guarantee of your safety and peaceful stay outside of Ukraine. To protect yourself from troubles abroad and to be calm for yourself and your loved ones, Visit Ukraine recommends not to delay and take out medical insurance online.
