New plan will apply to all tourists including those notified to leave the country
Kuwait’s ministries of health and interior are looking to introduce a mandatory health insurance plan for all visitors to the Gulf country.
The proposed insurance plan would apply and cover all visitors including families, tourists or visitors arriving on commercial visit visas, reported Kuwait Times.
It will also apply to visitors applying for temporary residencies and those notified to leave the country.
Officials said similar schemes have been introduced in many countries and are meant to help increase Kuwait’s financial revenues.
