Portugal issues travel insurance for international visitors

Portugal issues travel insurance for international visitors

The objective of the travel insurance is to guarantee travellers that they can move around Portugal with confidence in this pandemic.

International visitors planning their holidays to Portugal can now avail Portugal Travel Insurance, a travel insurance adapted to the new pandemic. The initiative is promoted by RNA Seguros de Assistência.
The coverage is extended to the entire national territory and covers, among others, medical, surgical, pharmaceutical and hospital expenses associated with Covid-19, as well as cancellation, interruption or holiday period extension expenses, also due to the pandemic. The objective is to guarantee visitors that they can travel around the country safely and with confidence.

This is yet another initiative that Turismo de Portugal is disseminating to international markets to strengthen the security of the destination, which comes in addition to the creation of the Clean and Safe Stamp and the renewal of the Portugal Health Passport, which now includes Covid-19 tests.

Tourists planning to visit Portugal will be able to register for free on the Health Passport through the PortugalHealthPassport website, which guarantees them the possibility of carrying out the Covid-19 test and access, at previously fixed prices, to urgent high-quality healthcare, five different types of check-ups, at CUFnetwork of clinics and hospitals’, Hospital da Luz, HPA Saúde and Lusíadas, throughout the national territory.

Since the creation of the Clean & Safe Stamp in April, there are already more than 21,000 members. The initiative, recognizing the Directorate-General for Health recommendations and the safe procedures implemented in tourist activities, focuses on the confidence necessary for the recovery, on the demand side but also on the supply side, covering the entire supply chain, raising tourism value. The Clean & Safe platform has been gathering great support and as companies resume their activity, the number of interactions on the degree of confidence regarding hygiene and cleaning compliance measures, has grown, too.

Through initiatives and projects of this nature, has Portugal consolidated its position as a safe destination that guarantees all the essential safe travel conditions to tourists.
