Health insurance plays a vital role in every person’s life by offering many benefits when adopting the right insurance policy. Many people have international insurance which may be used overseas. Before visiting Armenia, it is necessary to have travel insurance, which will cover the main medical expenses during your stay in Armenia. In case of emergency, you can be assisted in any medical centers in Armenia and then be remunerated by your insurance company. Expatriates living in Yerevan will need to have medical insurance, as it is mandatory for all residents.
