Travel insurance for immigrants

about 9 years ago about Asia

Does anyone know where we can get travel insurance, immigrating from the UK to NZ but travelling through India & Asia on the way?

    At any insurance company, I would say. That's for health insurance. For real travel insurance, you can check online... i think I saw once LonelyPlanet having some proposals. almost 10 years ago

    And I'm not sure what you mean by "on the way", but usually you can't get an insurance once on the way. You must make it before departure. almost 10 years ago

    • You're right, some insurers will only cover you if you buy before you leave home. With WorldNomads.com, you can buy travel insurance even while you're travelling. We don't mind if you've left home or if you've been travelling for a while or if you're on a one way trip like Janine is. Katrina Greeves almost 9 years ago

    Hi Janine, Katrina from WorldNomads.com here. You may have noticed that we sell travel insurance, and unlike some other insurers, we'll let you buy it for a one way trip. You can even buy travel insurance with us if you've already left home.

    If you're immgrating from the UK, there's a couple of considerations - if you've got access to permanent residency and medical care in NZ, then you can buy insurance with us as a NZ resident, so that if you need to be repatriated for medical reasons, then you'd be sent to NZ, rather than the UK. Otherwise, you are welcome to buy as a UK resident with us too.

    Please do take a look at our plans, read the full description of cover (policy wording) carefully, and choose the one that suites your personal requirements: http://worldnomads.com/insurance.aspx

    You can also contact our customer services team anytime - they're always happy to help: http://worldnomads.com/contactus.aspx

    Hope you have an amazing trip through India and Asia and best of luck settling into your new home in NZ!

    Safe travels! almost 9 years ago
