Allianz Partners uses the travel advice from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) to measure the potential risks of travelling to certain countries or regions. These MFAT updates are added to our website for your information.

Allianz Partners strongly consider MFAT’s advice in our decision on whether to provide cover in a region. It is therefore advisable to check this page regularly or on MFAT’s Safe Travel to understand the risk level of your holiday destination. The following information indicates risk levels.

Extreme risk: MFAT advise against all travel. This is usually to areas where there is a perceived heightened threat to New Zealanders.

High risk: Avoid all tourist and non-essential travel.

Some risk: Signifies a level of risk and caution is advisable.

No risk: No advice is given to these countries, though normal common sense should be applied as you would at home.

Sometimes MFAT issue a destination update but no change to the risk levels. If you are unsure if you are covered due to a Safe Travel advisory, please call us on 0800 161 810 or refer to the Policy Wording for more details.
