How is a UK resident defined?
To be able to understand what a non UK travel insurance is good for it is important to understand what a UK resident is. This being said: a person who has resided in the UK for more than 183 days (6 months) in a tax year will be a resident for the remainder of said year.
To be able to apply for travel insurance you will also have to be registered with a medical doctor in the UK. This is important because medical files are checked before a travel insurance policy can be issued.
The 183 day minimum stay guarantees that you will be considered a UK resident but there are also exceptions to this rule. Here are some situations where a person is considered a UK resident even without residing 183 days:
• Having family ties in the UK (spouse, civil partner, children, other close family members);
• Social ties (memberships to clubs, societies, events attended regularly);
• Business ties (owning a company or business based in the UK);
• Property ties (owning a house or apartment held for investment or accommodation.
If you find yourself in one of the situations above you will most likely be classified as a UK resident much faster than 183 days. The frequency at which you visit the UK will also impact the period of time necessary for you to become a resident.
Once a resident you will be able to apply for any of the travel insurance policies provided by UK insurers.
