Why did we develop the Eta-Glob's Visitor Insurance?
Insurance based on your needs
Our years of experience helped us to develop the Eta-Glob Visitor Insurance based on the needs of our customers.
On the one hand, regulations require that guests from abroad have a travel insurance policy that meets certain minimum requirements in order to obtain a Schengen visa.
On the other hand, many visitors look for an insurance that properly covers them against treatment costs after an accident or in case of illness. Health care costs are very high in many Schengen countries, especially in Switzerland - and for this reason you want to avoid this cost risk.
Swiss insurance law
Swiss consulates and embassies recommend choosing an insurance company that is subject to Swiss or Liechtenstein legislation.
Our insurance partner, HanseMerkur International in Vaduz (FL), meets these requirements.
Since 1996 there is a common insurance market between Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein, thus HanseMerkur from Vaduz is automatically authorized as a direct insurer for Switzerland.
