Be sure to mention the mutual health agreement with the UK and have all the necessary evidence when you have access to healthcare. If you exchange the words “UK” or “Australian” for “New Zealand” and “New Zealand” for “UK” or “Australian” in the summaries above, you will see what the agreements say about the rights of New Zealand citizens and holders of class of stay visas in these countries. While the NHS is a wonderful thing that is made available to people in the UK, wait times can be long and sometimes people prefer more personal care. This can be done with private health insurance. Allianz and April International are just two companies that can offer private healthcare for short-term and long-term stays to individuals or families.
