Portugal has launched a new specialised travel insurance product, and renewed its health passport scheme to guarantee visitors access to Covid testing.
Turismo de Portugal has partnered with RNA Assistance Insurance to create policies adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic and the specific challenges it poses.
Coverage extends to mainland Portugal, Madeira and the Azores, and covers medical, surgical, pharmaceutical and hospital expenses arising from a Covid infection.
The insurance also covers expenses relating to any cancellation, interruption, or extension of travel due to the pandemic.
"The goal is to ensure all visitors to Portugal can travel around the country safely and with confidence," said the country’s national tourism authority.
Other initiatives designed to highlight Portugal’s readiness to welcome tourists include its Clean & Safe seal, and renewal of its Portugal Health Passport – which now covers Covid testing.
