With COVID-19 still present, the thought of being close to large crowds can be scary. Being close to large groups of strangers in a different country can be even scarier. But it doesn’t have to be.
Traveling and keeping yourself safe is possible if you do it right. You can’t always control what happens around you, but you can control how you react by practicing responsible safety measures and covering yourself with comprehensive insurance in case something goes wrong.
COVID Insurance for Hongkongers Travelers
It is easy for Hong Kong citizens to travel to Thailand because Thailand is easing its travel restrictions and Hong Kong is considered a low-risk country, so they do not need to do a mandatory quarantine.
To enter Thailand, there are a few travel documents a traveler needs to complete. One document needed is a valid Travel insurance policy with COVID cover.
COVID Insurance can be called travel, medical, or health insurance. All are acceptable as long as it has COVID-19 cover.
COVID insurance is needed because travelers are not eligible for free medical care if they are diagnosed with COVID while in the country. COVID insurance will cover any medical or quarantine expenses relating to a COVID-19 incident.
