Also called "alien company".
A United States company offering coverage abroad would also be an alien insurer. An alien insurer is any insurer that is formed in a country foreign to where some or all of its business will be conducted. Regardless of where the insurer is located, it must follow the rules and regulations governing insurance practices in each locale where services are to be offered. In the United States, different states have particular requirements for allowing alien insurers to operate within the state.
