Arranging life insurance when you are going to Hong Kong for a vacation or business purposes, will generally have little impact upon your application.
Our advisers will check how your travel might affect your application by asking you:
- When are you travelling to Hong Kong?
- Are you going to Hong Kong for a holiday or work?
- How long will you be staying in Hong Kong for?
Insurers will generally consider trips to Hong Kong of less than 30 days as being of low risk, and will typically offer standard terms for life insurance. This means no premium increases or exclusions.
When you plan on travelling to Hong Kong for longer periods of time, it is possible that the insurer will want to know more about your travel plans. This can include the purpose of your journey, specific locations that you will be visiting and the amount of time that you plan on spending outside of the UK in any given year.
Some insurers might offer you life insurance at non-standard terms if you are outside of the UK a lot during a 12 month period. Our advisers will find the right insurer for you to match your travel.
British citizens who have moved abroad can often still access life insurance and critical illness cover in the UK. There are specific rules that you must follow to be eligible for new life insurance and critical illness policies, and we are here to strip out the jargon and get you the cover that you need.
Critical illness cover pays out a cash lump sum of money, if you are diagnosed with a medical condition that is listed in the insurer’s claims set e.g. cancer, heart attack, stroke.
Critical illness cover for people travelling to Hong Kong will often be available at normal terms. Whether you are travelling to Hong Kong for business or leisure purposes, insurers are unlikely to be concerned by most trips to the region.
Similar to life insurance, extended trips to Hong Kong may result in the insurer looking at your application more closely. The insurers main concerns that could affect the terms on offer, are likely to centre around the reasons for you being in Hong Kong, particularly if your journey is related to a high-risk occupation or sport.
Extended periods of time outside of the UK can mean that insurers start to assess your application upon risk data for the country that you are living in, rather than UK statistics. If you tax residency changes from the UK, you can find that new applications for critical illness cover will need to be placed with specific insurers.
Our advisers will search the insurance market for you and find you the right insurer to meet your needs.
Income protection pays you a replacement of your monthly income, if you are unable to work due to ill health.
Income protection for people travelling to Hong Kong may be available at standard terms. The insurer that you approach for income protection will want to know if your journey is related to your working tasks, or if you are required to travel outside the UK at all for your job.
If you work in a particularly high-risk occupation you may find that you need to be selective as to the insurer that you approach for income protection, to access the best terms possible for cover.
If you do not pay tax in the UK this can mean that some UK insurers will not consider your income protection application.
Our advisers will talk to you about your circumstances and find the right insurance options to meet your needs.
