Saudis to obtain travel insurance before travel
Wednesday, 05 26 2021, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Saudi Arabia
Saudis are required to receive their travel health insurance 24 hours prior to their departure as part of recommendations by the Council of Cooperative Health Insurance (CCHI).
As the pandemic continues throughout the world, CCHI and the relevant authorities are providing additional protection for Saudis heading to international destinations.
The insurance will cover them for 30 days starting from their departure date and will cover any cost and healthcare required to recover from the virus.
However, the insurance does not cover mandatory quarantine in the countries that they are visiting.
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MoH) reported 1,142 new cases on Saturday, taking the total number of infected cases in the Kingdom to 439,847.
