COVID travel insurance coverage offered for inbound travellers to Singapore

    Changi Airport Group and Singapore Tourism Board announced (18-Nov-2020) foreign visitors will now be able to buy inbound travel insurance coverage for COVID-19 related costs incurred in Singapore. Three insurance companies developed travel insurance products which provide at least SGD30,000 (USD22,349) in coverage for COVID related medical treatment and hospitalisation costs, a recommendation by the Ministry of Health based on COVID bill sizes at private hospitals. Inbound insurance coverage has been identified as a key enabler to facilitate the resumption of travel to Singapore.
