Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to work overseas.

Working and setting up a home in a new country is an exciting adventure. But like all travel, this comes with some level of risk. That’s why it’s important to make sure you have your medical and travel insurance sorted and it’s recommended that you secure and pay for your insurance prior to leaving your country of origin.

Fortunately, Workersafe has a travel insurance policy for people leaving New Zealand to work overseas (Workersafe Outbound) or arriving in New Zealand to work (Workersafe Inbound).

Workersafe Inbound

New Zealand is a beautiful country and its residents can enjoy a great work-life balance. If you’re planning to work here, you and your family have made a great decision. It’s important to make sure that you are all well covered during your stay. The Workersafe Inbound policy provides travel insurance cover to New Zealand inbound workers and their families.

Policy Eligibility

You are eligible to apply for the Workersafe Inbound Policy if you:

  • Hold a current New Zealand work visa; or 
  • Are exempt from the requirements to hold a visa to visit New Zealand; or 
  • Your country of origin has a visa waiver agreement with New Zealand. 

You can include cover for accompanying dependants and family under this policy. Dependent Children under 21 years of age can be covered for no additional premium but will share the insured person’s policy benefit limits. 

If you have purchased a policy prior to 1 November 2019 and you are looking for your Policy Wording or have any queries please contact us on 0800 486 004.

You can get a quote and buy your policy online or contact us on our toll-free number 0800 486 004 (within NZ) or +64 9 488 1638 (outside NZ).

Record of cover

You will be sent a Certificate of Insurance electronically. This will be emailed to you as soon as you have confirmed your policy and paid the premium. The Certificate of Insurance 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

The Workersafe Inbound policy includes a choice of policy excess options and an excess of $200 for portable electronic devices. Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply. 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 your Pre-existing Medical Conditions are not automatically covered, you are able to complete a Medical Assessment online. You may be charged an additional premium for this cover, if approved. If the cover for the Pre-existing Medical Condition(s) is not approved, then no cover is provided for these Pre-existing Medical Conditions. You have the choice to "opt out" of any approved additional cover for your Pre-existing Medical Conditions. However, this means no claim can be made for losses relating to those Pre-existing Medical Conditions. 

Specified High Value Items

For any baggage items that are worth more than the policy item limit you can extend the cover and specify the item on your policy. For portable computer equipment the item limit is $3,000 and for all other items the limit is $2,500. An additional premium will be charged to specify an item and you should insure it for the indemnity or current value of the item. These items can be specified when purchasing your policy online. Please note a limit of $10,000 per item and $20,000 for all specified high value items applies.
