Insurance Advice for COVID-19
Supporting customers on their travelling needs
The pandemic has changed the way we work and live since it first emerged in early 2020.
There are hopes of travel resuming with vaccine plans and travel bubbles/green lane agreements actively underway. QBE Hong Kong has taken a proactive approach to revamp our single trip and annual travel products to support the travelling needs of our business partners and customers.
Our travel products will provide medical expenses and trip cancellation insurance coverage to insured persons who contract COVID-19 after being vaccinated with at least one vaccine that is approved by the government, subject to terms and conditions.

Travel Insurance Arrangements
We’re working hard to support our customers whose travel plans are affected by COVID-19 and to those who require further assistance when caught in an unfortunate circumstance.
QBE Hong Kong has put in place the following to help our customers during this critical period:
- In the event of any involuntary delay, we will extend a free 14-day coverage extension to your travel policy;
- Insurance coverage for claims other than COVID-19 remains effective as per policy terms and conditions.
Some important notes in the event you need to make a claim:
- Please keep all relevant receipts and documents for expenses related to claims, including but not limited to medical expenses;
- Where expenses can be refunded by the provider this should be pursued in the first instance, with non-refundable expenses covered subject to the terms and conditions of your policy.
- Most importantly, we want you and your family to be safe so it’s important that you follow the advice of local authorities.
As the circumstance is changing from time to time, we recommend you to refer to this announcement and the Frequently Asked Questions for our updates if any.
