Before leaving on a trip outside of BC, it is a good idea to check for any travel advisories or health notices for your destination.
For information on Out-of-Country Emergency Medical Coverage and COVID-19, please visit the Benefits While Traveling page.
You are responsible for checking the status of the destination you are travelling so that you understand the risks inherent to that area.
If you are not sure whether you will be able to access medical emergency travel assistance while travelling outside of BC, contact Allianz Global Assistance to ask if they are able to provide service in your area of destination.
It is important to check the Government of Canada’s travel advisories and the Public Health Agency of Canada’s travel health notices before you leave on your trip. You should also review all entry and exit requirements to make sure you understand passport and visa requirements, as well as other entry/exit requirements.
