Filing a claim is a mandatory process for Visitors Insurance. Sending the claimant form along with necessary supporting documents, in a timely manner would speed up the process. After verification and approval, the insurance company would reimburse the claimant.
Claim handling, filing process, and contact numbers can also be found on the insurance policy documents.
How to File Travel Insurance Claim
- Completed claim form.

The claims department will verify the information provided and make the payment for all eligible claims to appropriate parties.
Keep a copy of all the communications for your records. You have to file the claim within a specified period/date which is generally within 90 days from the day of service obtained. Follow up on the status of your claim regularly with the insurance company.
The time taken for evaluating a claim is subjective to each case. It may take a few weeks to several months depending on several factors. By proactively providing the required documents, and following up with the insurance company, you can minimize administrative delays and help speed up the process.
