Australia has a mutual health agreement with the UK, which means that UK residents are able to get some health services free of charge while visiting Australia. Here is a list of provincial health sites and some examples of what Alberta and Ontario offer you outside the country. The cost of medical treatment can be very expensive and there are no specific regulations for British visitors. For emergency care, you can go to a hospital emergency room or to a large number of accessible clinics where no appointments are required in advance. There are a number of services that are not publicly funded, and these are different from country to country. Since none of the reciprocal agreements offer full coverage, travellers should purchase comprehensive travel insurance, including health insurance. The CEC is not applicable outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland. Be sure to mention the mutual health agreement with the UK and have all the necessary evidence documents when you have access to health care. Note: Mutual health agreements with the following countries were terminated in 2016: If you have dual British Nationality, you may still have to pay for medical care if you do not meet the conditions of residence in the provinces for health care. Check with the province or territory for more information. For information on what to do if you think you have a coronavirus while you are in Canada, check out the health information in the Coronavirus section. However, the provinces do not have individual agreements with countries, but they do have to deal with them at home and may not cover everything.
At least 8 weeks before your trip, you will find the latest country health mentions from the National Travel Health Network and Centre (NaTHNaC) on the TravelHealthPro website. Each country page provides information on vaccine recommendations, current health risks or outbreaks, as well as fact sheets on staying abroad. Instructions are also available through NHS (Scotland) on the FitForTravel website. If you plan to live or work in one of the countries of mutual agreement, the information contained in the links below may not apply. You are treated as if you were in the country in question. In general, these agreements apply to British nationals living in the United Kingdom. If you are not a British national, you can still be insured for an inexpensive or free treatment if you normally live in the UK. The United Kingdom has mutual health agreements with several non-EEA countries and territories.
