BahrainWhen you are travelling to Bahrain life insurance applications will need to detail the length of time that you intend to stay in the country and how often you plan to visit the country in the next year. For short stays it is possible that you will be able to secure life insurance at normal terms. If you intend to stay in Bahrain for more than 30 days at a time, the insurer may offer you life insurance at non-standard terms. 

Offshore workers travelling to Bahrain for their occupation should also read our dedicated occupations page here.

You can also find a broad overview of potential costs and consideration for insurance in our guides and infographics.

British citizens who have moved abroad can often still access life insurance and critical illness cover in the UK. There are specific rules that you must follow to be eligible for new life insurance and critical illness policies, and we are here to strip out the jargon and get you the cover that you need. 

Critical illness cover pays out a cash lump sum of money, if you are diagnosed with a medical condition that is listed in the insurer’s claims set e.g. cancer, heart attack, stroke.

Critical illness cover for those travelling to Bahrain may be available at standard terms, depending upon the length of time you spend in the country and how often you intend to travel there in the next 12 months. When you are planning a trip that is more than 30 days in duration and/or frequent visits in one year it is possible that the insurer will offer critical illness cover at non-standard terms. 

Income protection pays you a replacement of your monthly income, if you are unable to work due to ill health.

Those travelling to Bahrain may have access to standard terms for income protection, depending upon the reasons for travel.

The insurer will want to know the reason for your travel to Bahrain, especially if this is a work-based requirement, the frequency at which you will travel to the location and your activities/duties whilst there. If you are travelling to Bahrain for a leisure holiday, you will most likely find that income protection is available to you at standard terms.

It is also common for business professionals to have access to normal terms of cover for income protection when travelling Bahrain. For those in high-risk occupations the insurer may choose to offer non-standard terms in the form of an increase to the policy premium. When you arrange income protection you should ideally secure a policy on an ‘own occupation’ basis, that gives you the strongest claim definitions on this type of policy.
