Study in NZ – Students Insurance
The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides accident insurance for all New Zealand citizens, residents and temporary visitors to New Zealand, but you may still be liable for all other medical and related costs.
Further information can be viewed on the ACC website at www.acc.co.nz
Health and Travel Insurance
All international students must have appropriate and valid medical and travel insurance while studying in New Zealand. You are required to provide NZIE with proof of appropriate insurance (in English) from your home country or with a New Zealand provider to cover the length of your study in New Zealand. It is strongly recommended that you have a policy that covers the entire length of your student visa and permit.
When you apply to NZIE we will give you the option to have NZIE arrange Insurance for you. NZIE will organise this all once we receive your application. We deal with the best student insurance provider in New Zealand so this means you’ll be covered for any accident or health problems during your stay.
Please note: Pre-existing medical conditions are not automatically covered. Cover may be granted upon application – if you have a pre-existing medical condition please advise us prior to your arrival.
