should take adequate insurance cover prior your arrival to cover personal accident,
baggage, loss of airfares, medical expenses, etc. Our accident compensation scheme does
not cover medical costs.
Zealand operates a unique, no fault and accident compensation scheme called ACC. If
you have the misfortune to be injured in an accident while you are in New Zealand, then
you will receive medical and hospital treatment in New Zealand at very little cost to
yourself. However the, rates of compensation are very low by international standards

possible to obtain compensation through litigation. Accident Compensation does
not cover medical costs, unless they are as a result of a motor vehicle
accident. ACC laws are subject to change without notice.
