A pre-existing condition is defined as if you have ever suffered from any type of cancer, any heart, respiratory or circulatory conditions, any form of stroke or any terminal conditions. We would also ask for any details where in the last 24 months, you have received medical treatment, been prescribed any medication, been referred to or attended hospital or have been under investigation or are awaiting results for any undiagnosed condition or symptoms.

You must not travel against the advice of a medical practitioner or for the purpose of obtaining treatment, or undergoing investigations, tests or consultations abroad.
