Medical and Travel Insurance
Professional health care in New Zealand is not free to international students.
The Education (Pastoral Care of International Students) Code of Practice 2016 ("The Code") requires international students in New Zealand to have appropriate and current medical and travel insurance for the duration of their visa.
Evidence of Insurance Cover
International students must provide evidence of their insurance and medical cover to Kalandra.
If you are purchasing a policy in your home country we must be provided with a version translated into English so that it can be assessed and approved. Kalandra will advise you if the insurance cover is insufficient.
The policy should cover you for the following:
- Your travel to and from New Zealand
- The costs of medical treatment in New Zealand for the duration of your stay
- Your personal assets
- Funeral expenses
Alternatively, Kalandra can assist you with arranging insurance in New Zealand prior to your entry.
