Life Insurance

Arranging Life Insurance when you are going to Hong Kong for a vacation or business purposes, will generally have little impact upon your application. 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.

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. It is possible that your answers to additional questions that are asked could affect the terms that are on offer for Life Insurance.
