J1 Visa Travel – quality cover and peace of mind.

Globelink J1 Visa health insurance covers a wide range of pre-existing medical conditions for free. Diabetes, glaucoma, asthma and many other conditions are in the list of no screen conditions covered by the standard terms of the Globelink J1 Regular Policy.

J1 Regular provides Worldwide cover for people normally resident in the EU, so it's fine if you visit another country during your J1 Visa Exchange Programme trip.
