Insurance information for South Africa
Studying in South Africa is a great experience. But you want to make sure that you won’t run any risks. That’s why you need insurance in case anything unforeseen happens. Applying for the right insurance can be tricky, because you need to comply with the law and regulations of South Africa. Your university might also have additional insurance requirements. We can help you with the right insurance for your situation, so your insurance is accepted by universities and immigration authorities in South Africa.
If you already have insurance, have a second look, as it might not be enough. You must follow the criteria set by your university, local laws and regulations, and immigration laws.
What is typically missing in local or other insurances:
