Insurance and accidents

As visitors from most countries, including Sweden, are not entitled to publicly funded healthcare services in New Zealand, we strongly recommend that you have travel insurance for the duration of your visit.

If you have an accident in New Zealand

Visitors to New Zealand are generally covered for treatment in New Zealand for personal injury caused by accident in New Zealand, regardless of fault. The Accident Rehabilitation and Compensation Insurance Corporation (ACC) is responsible for managing the national personal injury insurance scheme.

ACC only covers injuries that happen in New Zealand and treatment you receive there. ACC cannot reimburse you for expenses such as delayed travel or loss of income in your home country. It is important to note that ACC will not cover you for illness - it is not a replacement for travel insurance.
