The Saudi Central Bank (SAMA) announced a possibility of adding benefits of COVID-19 risk coverage insurance to existing - non-beneficial - health insurance policies to insured visitors, for the remainder of these documents, through concluding an agreement with the insurance company issuing the policy.

In a statement, SAMA explained that this step complements its announcement dated 20/09/1442 AH, 02/05/2021 AD of adding of COVID-19 risk coverage for the health insurance for non-Saudi citizens from outside the Kingdom (tourism, visitors and Umrah visitors). It also comes in the interests of the health and safety of Saudi citizens and residents alike, and to facilitate access to the necessary health care system.

In the case of any complications, the insurer can visit the Central Bank's website (SAMA Cares) www.samacares.sa or dial the toll-free number 8001256666.
