Travel Tip: Countries Where Medical Travel Insurance is Mandatory
To travel to Cuba, you’re required to have travel insurance that includes medical coverage. That applies to everyone, not only Americans.
The good news is that many organized, people-to-people tours will include it, or you can compare policies on a site like InsureMyTrip.com.
If you’re applying for a visa to Russia, you may be asked to supply proof of medical travel insurance that’s valid in that country.
While it never happened, Thailand recently considered making medical insurance mandatory for all foreign visitors. News like that changes fast, so pay attention to the fine print when you’re making travel plans.

When it comes to high-ticket travel, the old adage is true…better safe than sorry.
