I'm currently a resident of the UAE (Abu Dhabi) and need Schengen insurance for my euro trip but I am having difficulty finding a company which will give me insurance as I won't be returning to the UAE. I will be cancelling my residence and returning to my native country, South Africa. Any advice on where I can get the insurance necessary for travel in the Schengen area even though I'm not returning to the country I am departing from?
I recently had to buy insurance for a Schengen visa for relatives. In their country of residence the premium was ridiculous expensive and I searched for a cheaper opportunity outside their country of residence. I found an online company that issued Schengen Visa insurance, where I managed to buy the insurance. They seem to cater the whole world.
I guess you need to state that your country is South Africa to be eligible for repatriation in case of an emergency to South africa, but you might want to contact them for details in your specific case.
