Working in a new country is an exciting adventure, but like all travel, this comes with some level of risk. Comprehensive medical and travel insurance is required for all seasonal workers during their period of stay in New Zealand. It is recommended that Seasonal workers are insured prior to their arrival in New Zealand, and for the duration of their stay.
You are eligible to apply for the Seasonsafe policy if you hold a current Recognised Seasonal Employer Visa.
Record of Cover
You will be sent a Policy Certificate electronically. This will be emailed to you as soon as you have confirmed your policy and paid the premium. The Policy Certificate will include specific information about your policy including your period of cover. We recommend that you store this in a safe place.
Policy Claims Excess
No excess will be deducted if you make a claim under Section 2: Medical Benefits. However, a policy excess of $50 applies to each separate event giving rise to a claim under all other sections. An excess of NZ$200 to your standard policy excess of $50 will apply once for each separate event giving rise to a claim for loss or theft of any portable electronic devices under Section 4: Personal Baggage, Effects and Personal Money Benefits. Please refer to the Policy Wording for detailed terms of cover.
Pre-existing Medical Conditions
Some Pre-existing Medical Conditions are automatically covered under this policy. Please review the Policy Wording to determine if your condition is covered. If you require cover for additional Pre-existing Medical Conditions, you will have the opportunity to apply for cover by completing a Medical Assessment form. You will be charged an additional premium if we accept cover.
