Multinational organisations and their staff members face many unknown perils. Additionally, unforeseen political events outside your home country can cause your organisation to evacuate. The average cost of evacuating a single employee can climb as high as USD 50,000.

The policy ensures that you will be able to receive the best possible medical treatment.

Case Study: Political Evacuation for International Schools in Libya Handled Successfully

Skilled experts from Clements will proactively identify unforeseen risks to help protect your organisation. In February 2011, political violence broke out in Libya forcing faculty and students to evacuate from international schools for their safety. Thanks to the Clements Political Evacuation and Repatriation insurance policy, the evacuation was handled successfully. 

Just months before the evacuation in December, Clements worked closely with the schools in Libya to develop a comprehensive coverage policy, spending years monitoring the situation in Libya. As Clements’ underwriters and consultants reported a deteriorating political situation in the country, Clements advised school directors and teachers about their coverage plans and political evacuation polices in the event of a political meltdown.

Clements also advised school directors on risk assessment strategies for determining if a project would be worth the potential damages incurred in a political upheaval. Through Clements’ Political Evacuation and Salary Continuation Insurance policy, international schools in Libya were fully prepared for the evacuation.
