Visitors to USA from India – Health Insurance & Travel Tips

During the summer a lot of people visit the US from India. Summer is preferred over the harsh winters in the US. Children are off from school for their vacations and grandparents like to spend time with them. All these make it a very busy travel season. These are some tips to make your trip more enjoyable.

  1. Keep your travel documents and passports safely. There are several stories circulating the internet about immigration officials tampering with passports. The story may or may not be true but it is a good idea to always keep an eye on your passport.
  2. Bring your Indian driver’s license if you want to drive in the US. Many states in the US allow foreign nationals to drive if they hold a valid license written in English.
  3. Bring your credit and debit cards. Cards bearing visa and master card logos can be used in ATMs and stores all over the US. Do not carry your Pin numbers along with your credit card.
  4. Purchase health insurance for visitors before your trip. Make sure the insurance company has claims offices in the US for fast and easy processing of claims. Purchase renewable coverage if you do not know how long you will be staying in the US.

Have a safe and fun trip to the US!
