Health in­sur­ance fee for visi­tors mulled

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

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
