QDB Export Insurance

  • Topics : Business and Finance
  • Audience : Individuals, Business

This service offers Qatari exporters protection from risks imposed by overseas buyers. Export insurance provides two types of export credit insurance:

Pre-shipment risk cover:

This coverage is for Made in Qatar products, which protects the exporter against loss of produce (direct or indirect) or when an order is cancelled before the goods are shipped. This is especially important for exporters producing custom-made products that may not be resalable or when you are obliged to discontinue production due to political or commercial risks in the importing country.

Specifications and conditions:

  • Coverage begins when the goods are delivered and ends with the payment/policy expiry date.
  • Coverage for all political and commercial risks.
  • Coverage of up to 90% of the value of the payable.

post-shipment risk cover:

Post-shipment risk cover protects the exporter against the risk of an overseas buyer failing to pay for goods received on credit. It is intended to protect transactions with repayment terms not exceeding 12 months and mainly includes the supply of consumer goods, raw materials, semi-finished goods and spare parts.

Specifications and conditions:

  • Similar to the pre-shipment risk cover, the guarantee covers 90% of the value of goods
  • Coverage begins when the goods are delivered and ends with the payment/policy expiry date.
  • Coverage for all political and commercial risks
  • Coverage of up to 90% of the value of the payable.​​
