Health Insurance for Tourists. One of the basic requirements of a tourists coming to Nigeria is to have a health insurance policy. Every year, thousands of international visitors and immigrants to Nigeria require emergency medical treatment and do not have some form of insurance policy to cover the high costs involved. Oftentimes, most travellers/tourists are ignorant of how expensive medical care is in Nigeria. This is even made more complicating by the fact that medical facilities may also not recognize insurance provided by a “foreign” insurance company and could deny services or demand up-front payment for treatment. This can be adequately taken care of by Mansard Insurance, formerly Guarantee Trust Assurance. Mansard Insurance offers a highly beneficial travel medical insurance plan that can provide illness and accident expense protection, and it can pay for treatment during your visit to Nigeria.
Mansard Insurance Plc, formerly Guaranty Trust Assurance Plc, is a leading provider of life, health and general insurance services in Nigeria. Mansard Health has 4 types of Health Plans including: 1.

For individuals applying for the Schengen Visa and those travelling outside Nigeria, an International Health Insurance Plan is a necessity and can be the difference between getting a comprehensive treatment outside Nigeria and spending a lot of money.
