The World Cup in Qatar is approaching, and thousands of Israelis are expected to fly to Doha to watch it.

Segal adds: "Passportcard has established the necessary infrastructure to respond when there is a need for ground or air medical evacuation, a need for isolation or even filing a complaint with the police if required in light of a robbery/theft. Thus thousands, if not thousands, of Israelis who have already purchased tickets to participate in the World Cup and will be in Qatar during the games , know that there is a proven infrastructure and connections with reliable and safe places. It is also important that the insured find out before the flight who the body or person they are supposed to contact in case of an emergency and the procedures and rules of the place in this regard. In addition, passengers whose flight is delayed by an hour and a half can continue the wait in the lounge of The airport is free of charge at 650 airports around the world and in Qatar in particular (subject to registration on the website). We of course work to be prepared for any scenario in terms of the insurance envelope and assist as much as is required."
