The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) recently announced the continuation of the "Thailand Travel Shield" project to provide online travel insurance for foreign tourists.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said TAT had initiated the creation of the Thailand Travel Shield project as an alternative insurance scheme in July 2014, in partnerships with reputable, publicly-listed insurance companies in Thailand.

"This year marks the fifth anniversary of our travel insurance initiative to ensure that travellers enjoy the utmost travel experience during their visit to Thailand. The project forms part of a concerted effort by the Thai government, our team at TAT, relevant authorities and the private sector to ensure the safety and security of both tourists and residents," Mr. Yuthasak added.

Travellers planning a trip to Thailand can continue to buy the Thailand Travel Shield's insurance coverage online at http://thailandtravelshield.tourismthailand.org/. Available in English and Chinese, the platform allows several payment methods including credit card, debit card, Union Pay and AliPay, with the insurance policy being sent instantly to the insured via email.

Visitors availing of the Thailand Travel Shield insurance scheme will be covered once they pass through the immigration until they leave the kingdom. In case of emergency, they can take advantage of the 24-hour emergency assistance by Allianz Global Assistance with staff who are able to speak 40 languages plus an access to more than 300 hospitals across Thailand.
