Insurance required to enter Philippines

Recommended Posts


It is my understanding that one is required to have medical insurance to cover covid when entering the Philippines. The same for Vietnam. Can anyone suggest a company to buy from? I will be going to the Philippines and a few other countries. I want to absolute minimum require. I am Canadian so a Canadian company might work best, but maybe it does not matter.  Thanks very much!

I have a CIBC Visa.  I phoned their customer service number to ask if I have coverage when I purchase my airline ticket on the card. In my case I did not, but they gave me the number of their insurance provider.  I called and told them I wanted the absolute minimum Covid coverage to satisfy Philippine immigration.  I got a 30 day policy for about CAD$135.  If you can do better than that then go for it.  If you like that price, try to contact them. Allianz is their name.  Here is an email they sent me.




Thank you for your call and your interest in our CIBC travel insurance.

Please find attached the CIBC sample policy wording.
