Travel Insurance – China

By Steven Thomas    January 29, 2020

Travel Insurance is an essential product, but you need to be aware of the scope of protection provided especially in this ever-changing World

Due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus the Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade (DFAT) now advises travellers to ‘reconsider your need to travel’ to China overall and ‘do not travel’ to Hubei Province

Chinese authorities have restricted travel for parts of the country and may extend these restrictions at short notice. Travellers may be quarantined, due to their health conditions or previous location

Please check the DFAT website for further advice:
