Non resident visitors to Australia are able to arrange travel insurance for their trip through one of the two non resident policies available through North. Non resident travel insurance can be purchased by visitors to Australia who are under 81, and both non resident policies provide unlimited cover for emergency medical expenses while travelling (along with a range of other benefits).

  • Select from Mid and Basic cover
    Select from the Mid Non-Resident Policy and the Basic Non-Resident Policy with reduced levels of cover.
  • Travel to and within Australia
    Travel Insurance for non residents travelling to Australia for a holiday or to visit relatives. Provides cover while in Australia, and while travelling to Australia and back home.
  • Available to travellers aged under 81
    Available to non residents of Australia aged under 81 years on the date the Certificate of Insurance is issued.
  • Unlimited cover for emergency medical
    Mid and Basic policies include unlimited cover for medical and hospital expenses if you become sick or injured during the trip, and unlimited cover for medical evacuation to get you back to your home country.
  • Book before or after arrival in Australia
    Policies can be purchased either before or after arriving in Australia. When purchased after arriving in Australia, a 48 hour waiting period will apply to claims relating to any injury or sickness.
  • Must spend majority of the trip in Australia
    Non resident travel insurance is only available where the majority of the total trip will be spent in Australia. Policies will cover minor side trips to other countries (for example, a brief trip across the Tasman to New Zealand) provided that the majority of the trip is in Australia.
  • Remove the excess for just $35
    A standard policy excess of $150 applies. The excess can be reduced to nil by paying an additional $35, or the excess can be increased to $250 to reduce the overall premium.
  • Available with a 25% discount
    Request a quote to receive a 25% discount on the premium through North Travel Insurance.

Visiting Australia
