North American FAQs


Which North American countries require travel insurance?

As of April 2023, no North American countries require travel insurance to enter.

When planning to travel, it is essential to consider the potential expenses of medical care in your destination country. The U.S. Department of State - Bureau of Consular Affairs advises purchasing alternative medical insurance as a precautionary measure. Medical costs can quickly become overwhelming, especially if emergency services or transportation are required. It's worth noting that the quality and price of medical care can vary significantly among countries, with some being more remote than others. 

For instance, countries like Bermuda, Greenland, and Jamaica, where medical services are limited and more challenging to access, can lead to higher costs for medical care.

Therefore, it's advisable to research the medical facilities and services available in your destination country and consider purchasing adequate medical insurance coverage before traveling.
