Health insurance fee for visitors mulled

KUWAIT: Health Ministry Undersecretary Dr Khaled Al-Sahlawi said the ministry is studying the possibility of imposing health insurance on visitors, adding that this proposal was on the agenda of the parliament’s health committee during its meeting last Monday.

The fees should be added to the value of air tickets, or the visitor can pay them at the border, he said. Meanwhile, a private school in Hawally Education Zone registered a case of H1N1 virus infection, and the prevention health department made inspection tours to examine the school’s students last week. —Al-Rai
