It is compulsory for all international students to have full insurance cover throughout their time in New Zealand. As part of the application process Green Bay High School needs to ensure that the insurance has appropriate cover in accordance with the Code of Practice. Insurance must be arranged prior to departure.

Under the Code of Practice, appropriate insurance must include:

    1. The students travel
      • To and from New Zealand; and
      • Within New Zealand; and
      • If the travel is part of the course, outside New Zealand
    2. Medical care in New Zealand, including diagnosis, prescription, surgery, and hospitalisation:
    3. Repatriation or expatriation of the student as a result of serious illness or injury, including cover of travel costs incurred by family members assisting with repatriation or expatriation:
    4. Death of the student, including cover of:
      • Travel costs of family members to and from New Zealand; and
      • Costs of repatriation or expatriation of the body:and
      • Funeral expenses

Green Bay High School works with Student Safe (underwritten by Allianz) who deliver a comprehensive policy for international students. Read the details of the policy here.

Depending on length of stay in New Zealand the cost ranges from $125 for one term to $480 for one year.

If you choose to take out insurance in your own country, you will need to provide us with:

  • A copy of your policy in English
  • Evidence of its validity
  • Evidence that the insurance policy covers all of the above

These need to be sent to the school prior to your departure to give us time to ensure the cover is adequate and satisfies compliance expectations set by the Code of Practice.
