Vientiane (VNA) – The Laos National Steering Committee to Prevent and Combat the COVID-19 required all foreign citizens who enter the country acquire travel medical insurance due to the epidemic.

Insurance will accompany travel documents and other requirements, such as a negative certificate for the virus SARS-CoV-2 using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test technique, issued within 72 hours of arrival in Laos.

The National Steering Committee offers that initiative, in the context that conventional travel and health insurance policies do not provide coverage for pandemics, including risks related to COVID-19.

Based on the cost of treatment and possible repatriation, to the government
laosiano worries about being responsible for unpaid hospital bills from outsiders.

Meanwhile, the Laotian Times website posted that in addition to purchasing health insurance, foreign nationals entering Laos have to rent health monitoring equipment.

The Laotian Times said that COVID-19 insurance costs $ 100 for people ages 1 to 90 and will last 14 days.

Insurance coverage for those who test positive for the disease and need medical treatment will be between $ 10,000 and $ 20,000, and for the deceased, $ 1,000 to $ 5,000 for the insurance./.
