Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases around the world, Griffith University has suspended all outgoing student international mobility for the near future. Our insurance provider considers COVID-19 a known event and is no longer covering claims relating to the virus for anywhere in the world. This means that students diagnosed with the virus while traveling anywhere in the world will not be covered under the University travel insurance policy for medical treatment or other related benefits (including repatriation) for travel booked after Monday 2 March 2020, and there will be no insurance cover for cancellations or travel changes as a result of COVID-19. Access to International SOS services is also not available as a result of insurance cover not being available.
We understand that this will affect students, however, the health and safety of our students is critical in the rapidly evolving situation related to COVID-19. In saying this, we welcome you to review the amazing range of overseas mobility experiences which are available and continuing planning so you are prepared for when an update to the University travel insurance policy is made, and we can process applications, pay grants and issue travel insurance and 24/7 emergency assistance documentation again.
All programs will be reviewed prior to delivery in relation to travel advisories and student health and safety, and may not proceed if the University is not confident of both or cannot provide comprehensive insurance coverage. We recommend that students do not book travel until the program is confirmed and we will endeavour to do this as far as possible in advance.
