Majilis Speaker called upon to increase the protection of Kazakhstan tourists’ rights abroad

The Majilis Speaker supposes, that those who go abroad using travel vouchers should be fully insured for the whole period.

At the plenary meeting of the Majilis under the chairmanship of Speaker of the Chamber Nurlan Nigmatulin in the first reading, amendments to the legislation on insurance and insurance activity were discussed.

The bill envisages, in particular, the introduction of a mechanism of online insurance in the system of obligatory insurance. It is also planned to revise the system of insurance of tourists’ risks.

In this connection, at the discussion the Deputies raised the issues of obligatory insurance of tourists, who go abroad. In particular, they discussed the temporary insurance, the time is defined by travel vouchers. The parliamentarians expressed concern about the cases when the amount of insurance coverage is not enough to provide aid to tourists.

The Majilis Speaker underlined the importance of the issue set and addressed the developers of the legislation:

“Many of our citizens spend holidays abroad using travel vouchers. It is obvious, that different situations can occur, such as diseases or other reasons. But the most important is that Kazakhstanis who go abroad using travel vouchers should be fully insured for the whole period. That is why, this issue should be discussed in the second reading,” Nurlan Nigmatulin said.
