“European Travel Insurance” is the only insurance company that provides medical insurance (permanent health insurance) to diplomatic staff on their long-term business trips, as well as to their family members.
At the end of 2019, a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and the Private Joint Stock Company “European Travel Insurance” and, starting on 2020, each diplomatist departing on a long foreign trip and his family members will be insured by ETI for the first 60 days their stay abroad.
The ETI insurance policy for Ukrainian diplomatists includes mandatory types of insurance for traveling outside Ukraine:
Medical Expenses Insurance – provides you with emergency medical aid abroad in case of a sudden disease or an accident within the terms of the insurance contract.
When you take out the insurance, please, pay attention to the insurance sum. For trips to EU countries we recommend the sum insured for medical expenses insurance not less than EUR 30 000 for each Insured person. For countries such as Thailand, India (Goa), as well as countries far from Ukraine, the island states and countries such as the Maldives and Caribbean, as well as the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Australia, North and South America, we recommend you to take the insurance with amount of cover not less than 50 000 EUR/USD.
Personal Accident Insurance – provides insurance payment in case of temporary/permanent disability or death resulting from an accident occurring abroad.
Please, pay your attention,that the insurance conditions for the diplomatic corps are designed for business trips and do not include the options offered by the ETI in comprehensive insurance for traveling abroad Ukraine and within Ukraine, which will help to avoid additional costs and financial losses in unforeseen situations before, during and after your trips.
For example, if you plan to spend your vacation actively: skiing, sledding, ice skating, motorbiking, water skiing, diving, taking part in amateur sports, riding animals or engaging in other activities with increased risk, this must be included in your insurance policy. In this case, an extra charge will be applied to the insurance rate.
Also, the Comprehensive Insurance Agreement may include, in addition to the compulsory insurance of medical expenses and accident insurance, additional types of insurance that will help you in unforeseen situations while traveling, such as:
Public Liability Insurance - provides civilized solution of conflict situations in a court, legal assistance and compensation in case if you unintentionally cause damages to property or life and health of the third parties.
