To request free, no-obligation quotes from leading insurers, please visit our expat insurance page
Insurance is a part of everyday life no matter where you live. Insurance for some things is compulsory, for other things advisable and then insurance that might be seen as important to one person but not the next.
For anyone thinking of moving to the UAE probably the most important insurance would be medical. For Abu Dhabi emirate it is a condition of entry but for the other six emirates it is strongly advised. Life insurance is also very important to protect loved ones if the worst should happen but don’t forget to make a will or you could fall foul of Shariah Law.
Car insurance is compulsory as elsewhere in the world and different levels of cover can be arranged. Insurance for your home and contents, insurance for your yacht, bike or sports goods, there is a policy out there for just about everything.
