Egypt – Compulsory ins. on tourists
Saturday, 08 25 2018, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Egypt
Egypt is about to launch the first law on the compulsory insurance of all tourists in order to strengthen the trust in Egypt and increase the security of tourists.
The insurance contract will cover personal accident risks including death and permanent total disability as well as the cost of treatment during the residence in Egypt.
The importance of compulsory insurance increased after Thomas Cook holidaymakers announced the withdrawal of all its clients from Red Sea resort of Hurghada following the death of two British tourists and further reports of a raised level of illness among other tourists.
