Diabetes and tourist visa

Has anyone applied for a tourist visa with diabetes? I have a relative who would like to visit us, but she has this condition. She will take insurance, however, so far we havent found any visitor insurance that covers diabetes. Does anybody know of one?

Cheers!

Having diabetes will not prevent u getting a tourist visa. Im surprised u havent found one that covers it as its a very common condition nowadays. When i got insurance one of the questions was do i have diabetes and because i do i just had to do a medical questionnaire. It only cost me abit extra than what i was quoted because of that.

Thanks for your reply Ozzy, just one question, which insurance did you choose for coming here with that condition? Also, how many insulin and medicines supply were you allowed to bring when coming to Australia?

Cheers!

Well im an australian citizen. I was referring to any time ive gone overseas. Most travel agents sell travel insurance.
You can get a letter from your doctor about what you're carrying but nearly 8 yrs being diabetic no airport has ever questioned me about it.

Hi, I also have diabetes (type 1) and diagnosed 24 years ago. I have never had a problem with getting insurance, in fact I use insure n go (best to google it) I have to pay a more expensive premium by about 50 but never been denied. I carry 2 types of insulin (lantus and humalog - long and short acting) I went for 6 weeks in 2009 and got about 5 quotes before settling with insure n go .

Shouldn't be a problem so best of luck for your relative.

Tom
