Importance of Insurance
Whether you plan to live, work or travel in Vietnam for a few weeks or many years, it is important that you have health insurance coverage with medical evacuation facilities to give you peace of mind during your stay. Insurance cover for outpatient and inpatient services as well as evacuation and repatriation is important. There is a real challenge in the country in terms of access to appropriate emergency medical facilities. When the needs of injured or ill patients exceed what local clinics and hospitals can provide, an urgent medical evacuation by air to the nearest appropriate medical facility in Thailand or Singapore becomes the key to preserving function and saving lives.
We recommend for you to arrange your medical insurance before you arrive in Vietnam. However, there are several reliable local insurance brokers in Vietnam that sell internationally recognized insurance policies to companies and individuals.
