The insurable interest in life insurance is a core principle for the parties to enter into an insurance contract. In case the policyholder does not have insurable interest to the insured, the life insurance contract will become invalid or the life insurance contract will terminate when the policyholder no longer has insurable interest in accordance with Vietnam Insurance Business Law.
