Can foreigners in South Africa get insurance with Sanlam Indie?
Our online quote process requires a South African ID number, so you can’t take out a policy with us if you don’t have a South African ID.
You CAN cover your family members with Sanlam Indie Family Funeral Cover if they are foreign nationals, but there are some conditions:
- All additional lives must live permanently in South Africa (with valid travel documents)
- Citizens of South Africa, Lesotho and Namibia are covered for deaths that occur in or outside of South Africa
- All other nationalities are covered for deaths that occur in South Africa only
- Sanlam Indie will deny claims for anything that happens in one of the excluded countries
