many thanks alan & rapeeporn (tom)

She is !!!!!!!

Are you making an assumption or have you been refused ?

In our case as the wife did not have ILR we had to get the standard policy endorsed to show she was not a UK resident but was fully covered by the policy the same as a UK Citizen.

Initially the Insurer wanted to exclude medical cover in LOS assuming they had similair to the NHS but when pointed out there was not and she was a UK taxpayer and entitled to the NHS in the UK they relented.

We have a multi trip annual policy with a max of 90 days any one trip cost £75.00 including IPT (Insurance Tax)

Hope this helps.

She is !!!

She has leave to remain so she's a permanent resident.

THe OP does not make it clear if he has actually been refused insurance for his wife or that he's basing his views on something he has read whilst doing research.

Wasn't that hard to understand, was it :D

This is from ASDA'a FAQ's: http://www.asdafinance.com/insurance/travel-insurance

So get your credit card out and purchase it today.

What is meant by the term UK resident? (javascript:;)

Someone who is living in England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland and continues to live there throughout the period of insurance.


I am British but my partner does not have British citizenship, can we purchase a policy to cover us as a couple? (javascript:;)

Yes, provided you are both resident in the United Kingdom and your partner is your spouse or a person of either sex with whom you have been living with for at least three months as though they were your spouse.
