Life Insurance

Life Insurance for those travelling to Libya will need to be placed with a specialist insurer. Terms of cover cannot be indicated due to the degree of unrest in the country and each case will be assessed on an individual basis. It is possible that the insurer may decline your application for Life Insurance whilst you travel to Libya. The insurer that you approach will want to know how long you intend to stay in Libya, how many times you plan to travel there in the next year and the purpose of your stay.

Critical Illness Cover

Critical Illness Cover for people travelling to Libya will also need to be placed with a specialist insurer who may be able to offer terms of cover, but this is not guaranteed. When you place your application for Critical Illness Cover you will need to detail the reason for your travel, how long you will be in Libya for and how often you intend to visit the country in the next year. Your application will be assessed on an individual basis based upon these details and other standard considerations for insurance e.g. health, occupation, hobbies. You may find that the insurer will not offer you a Critical Illness policy until your travel to Libya has ended.
