The Musafir programme was developed by The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with Daman, an insurance company, to provide Emiratis emergency travel insurance while they’re living or travelling abroad.
The programme offers a comprehensive health insurance package of up to Dh500,000 on a direct payment basis. The annual premium will be Dh250 for people under 18 years old and Dh399 for adults.
Ambassador Ahmed Alham Al Thaheri, Assistant Undersecretary for Consular Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs comments:
"More citizens are traveling abroad every year, which necessitates matters be taken more seriously when it comes to health issues and emergencies whilst outside the country,"
