When You Should Buy Visitors Insurance?

You can buy these plans anytime before the person starts the journey or even after they arrive in the United States. It is advisable to buy the policy at least a day in advance of the plan effective date.

The plan start/effective date can be based on the following factors:

  • If you're buying a fixed/limited plan which covers only within the USA the start date should be the day person arrives into United States.
  • If the plan is a comprehensive coverage plan with the option of international coverage the start date should be the day the person boards the plane. These plans are effective during the flight as well.
  • If the person has already arrived you can choose the start date any day you would like to start the insurance coverage. The earliest start date can be the next day.
