SKY COVID CARE offers coverage ranging from 20 million VND (853 USD) to 200 million VND for all passengers regardless of nationality and age.

Passengers are eligible for insurance coverage and benefits from Vietjet within 30 days starting at 00:01 of the flight date, regardless of how the passengers become infected with the disease, Vietjet said in a statement.

Those who purchased tickets before March 23 and travel within the effectiveness period are also covered.
