Chinese Travel insurance Plans for Trips to Australia
Australia is ranked the #1 travel destination for Chinese citizens, which is anticipated to continue for the next few years. In fact, according to a study by Visa PATA Travel Intention Survey, they found that more than half of the travelers from China are expecting to visit Australia within the next two years. This has been further underscored by last month’s announcement by the Australian government to invest $30 million to market Australia as an attractive travel destination in China.
Australia, known for its natural beauty, tradition, and culture, has been a hot travel destination for many international travelers. Since 1999 when Australia was added to the Approved Destination Status list of approved countries for international travel, Australia has continuously grown to be one of the favorite destinations for Chinese. Currently, China is ranked 4th in the world in terms of the number of visitors Australia receives each year.
While Australia has reciprocal health agreements with specific nations, China is a non-participating member. Because of this, it is highly recommend to purchase an international travel insurance policy while traveling to Australia. The Atlas Travel Insurance plan is well designed for this as it provides coverage for inpatient and outpatient services, prescription drugs, emergency medical evacuation, repatriation, doctor office visits, etc. To be eligible for this plan, individuals must simply be outside their home country and can purchase as little as 5 days of coverage.
