If you're injured while visiting New Zealand, we may be able to help you. It doesn’t matter if you’re not a resident. You'll still need travel insurance for what we don't cover.

You still need travel insurance
Make sure you buy travel insurance before your visit because we don’t cover:
- disrupted travel plans or emergency travel to get you back home
- injuries while in transit to or from New Zealand. This includes getting on or off a boat or plane
- travel around New Zealand in the craft you arrived in, for example, a cruise ship
- treatment and rehabilitation when you get back home.
