To qualify to purchase travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance, you must be a UK resident and registered with a doctor in the United Kingdom. If you are a non-UK resident: individual, student or family, living and working outside of your home country for an extended period of time, you will not qualify to purchase travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance.
However, if you are looking for health insurance whilst living and working outside of your home country, you may want to consider an international health insurance plan from our sister company, Allianz Worldwide Care.
Unlike travel insurance, which mainly covers for emergencies whilst travelling abroad, luggage and trip cancellation, international health insurance from Allianz Worldwide Care is designed to cover expatriates for medical costs associated with in-patient treatment, along with benefits such as medical evacuation, out-patient surgery and rehabilitation treatment.
International health insurance is a long term solution for expatriates working and living outside of their home country for an extended period of time.
