International visitors can now purchase Portugal Travel Insurance. It is a travel insurance adapting to the new pandemic reality caused by Covid-19. RNA Assistance Insurance is promoting the initiative. The price varies from 37.20 Euro-65.20 Euro, depending on the number of days you are visiting the country.
The coverage extends to the whole country. The coverage includes medical, surgical, pharmaceutical and hospital expenses associated with Covid-19. It also includes expenses due to cancellation, interruption, or extension of travel because of the pandemic. The goal is to ensure that all who visit Portugal can travel around the country, safely and confidently.
Visit Portugal is supporting this initiative for international visitors. It complements other recent programs including the Clean & Safe seal and the renewal of the Portugal Health Passport. This covers Covid19 tests for visitors.
Tourists planning to go to Portugal will also be able to register for the Health Passport at no cost, through the Portugal Health Passport website, which guarantees a covid-19 test and access, at previously fixed prices, to high quality urgent health care or check-ups of five different typologies, in the network of hospitals and clinics of CUF, Hospital da Luz , HPA Saúde and Lusíadas, throughout the national territory.
Safe tourism in Portugal
Since the creation of the Clean&Safe seal in April, more than 19,000 companies have received the endorsement. Moreover, the seal recognizes compliance with the recommendations of the Directorate-General for Health and the safe procedures for the operation of tourism activities.
Through initiatives such as these, Portugal has reinforced its position as a safe destination that guarantees all the essential sanitary conditions for the enjoyment of its unique travel experiences.
According to the organization and other parties involved in the initiative “the objective is to guarantee, to all who visit Portugal, so that they can travel around the country, safe and with confidence.”
The movement comes in an effort to revive the tourism sector, which has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic
