All international students must have appropriate and valid student medical and travel insurance while studying in New Zealand. Most of the policies available aboard do not comply as per the guidelines of The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016.

Please note that premium refunds are not normally permitted after the first 10 working days of the coverage period. Students can also update their policy to a family policy which will cover their spouse and children.

Immigration New Zealand requires all international students to have appropriate medical / travel insurance cover for the full length of their student visa period as a condition of the student visa and students must confirm their insurance cover at the beginning of each semester. International students who do not provide evidence of their medical / travel insurance will be invoiced for the required cover.
Please note that international students without an appropriate and valid insurance policy will not be permitted into class.
