Medical and Travel Insurance Information

According to Immigration New Zealand policy, all fee-paying international students must have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance from the time they leave their home country and throughout their study in New Zealand. Student visa holders are generally not eligible for publicly funded health and disability services.

Holding insurance is a condition of obtaining a student visa and you may become liable for deportation if you do not hold insurance from the period of enrolment until your visa expires (unless you depart New Zealand earlier). For more information, visit the Immigration New Zealand website.
