The Working Overseas policy offers two destination categories you can choose from: Australia/South Pacific and Worldwide. Be sure to get the right cover for the countries you plan to travel to, not just the countries you’ll be working in. For example, if you’ll be working in Australia but you plan to visit Europe, you must select the Worldwide option.
Which countries are covered under Australia/South Pacific?
The following countries are all covered under the Australia/South Pacific plan:
- American Samoa
- The Cook Islands
- French Polynesia
- New Caledonia
- Norfolk Island
Going further abroad?
Our Worldwide plan offers our highest level of cover and includes all destinations, including those listed under the Australia/South Pacific plan. The only exception are destinations with a travel advisory risk rating of ‘do not travel’ or ‘avoid non-essential travel’ published on the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website (www.safetravel.govt.nz), prior to your start date of insurance. Need more than 12 months cover for Canada, the UK or the USA? If you’re going to Canada, the UK or the USA on a working holiday visa, you can purchase cover for up to 24 months. You will need to call us on 0800 800 571 to arrange this.
What if things change?
One day you’re living in New Caledonia, the next you could be in Hong Kong.
