Travel Safe in St Lucia

Make sure you have adequate insurance coverage for your trip. Travel insurance guarantees that you will recoup some of your money in case of bad weather or unexpected family emergencies that may interfere with your travelling plans. Additionally, you should check that your medical and dental insurance covers any expenses you may incur overseas. Even though you have medical insurance, you might still have to pay out of pocket for services and then file a claim for reimbursement upon return to your home country

Locate the embassy or the consulate of your country that is serving St. Lucia.
