Vietnam Travel Insurance Requirements

Effective May 15, 2022, Vietnam lifted all Covid-19 travel requirements, including mandatory travel insurance. With that said, these entry rules are subject to change at any time, and all travelers heading to Vietnam should confirm the latest entry requirements prior to departing for their trip.

Squaremouth’s Vietnam Travel Insurance Recommendations

In addition to a policy with Emergency Medical coverage with at least $50,000 in coverage, Squaremouth recommends a policy with at least $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage. Travelers who are visiting more remote areas of Vietnam should consider a policy with at least $100,000 of Emergency Medical and $250,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage, due to the potential for increased medical costs.

Emergency Medical coverage can offer reimbursement for treatment due to an unforeseen illness or injury, and typically includes treatment for contracting Covid-19. The Medical Evacuation benefit can provide reimbursement for costs associated with transportation costs associated with a traveler getting to the nearest adequate medical facility.

For travelers with prepaid and non-refundable trip costs, Squaremouth recommends the Trip Cancellation benefit, which can reimburse up to 100% of covered trip costs if a traveler has to cancel their trip before they’ve left. Typical reasons include an unforeseen illness or injury, death, inclement weather, or terrorism. Canceling from testing positive for Covid-19 is typically covered, as well.

Policies with Trip Cancellation coverage typically includes Trip Interruption. This benefit can cover a traveler’s unused, prepaid, non-refundable trip expenses if a person’s trip gets interrupted for a covered reason such as illness or injury, flight delays, or a natural disaster. If a traveler needs to cut their trip short, this benefit can also cover additional transportation expenses incurred to return home.
