China travel insurance FAQs

If only Hong Kong is listed on my purchased policy, will it also cover China?

We class Hong Kong as the same region of coverage as China, so therefore you will have coverage for China.

Do I need a Visa for a 48hr-72hr stopover in China on my way to Europe?

For all Visa questions, you will need to refer to Smartraveller or Australian consular assistance in China.

Will I be covered for entering Tibet?

By specifying China on the policy, this will cover you for Tibet.

Will I be covered if my Visa is denied at the entrance into China via my stay in Hong Kong?

There is a general exclusion in our policy for this, which means failure to obtain a relevant visa is not covered on the policy.

Can I choose to come back to Australia on my own accord for medical help if needed as I am worried about the standard of the hospitals in China?

You will need to contact our Emergency Assistance team, as it would need to be assessed what the best option is for you. Just keep in mind that your policy will end the moment you come back to Australia.
