The following list of countries and territories in North, Central and South America shows their country risk classification and NZECO's indicative level of cover. The country policy applies primarily to NZECO's Short-Term Trade Credit and Export Credit Guarantee products.
This Country Cover information describes the Export Credit Office's guiding cover-policy at the time of issue. The information does not necessarily reflect the present possibilities for cover. Before acting on the background of this material, the company/bank is requested to obtain further information from NZECO. If a country is not on the list, contact us.
NZECO is open for cover across the range of private and public buyers, subject to NZECO’s standard underwriting criteria for each transaction.
NZECO is open for cover although this may be for a limited profile of buyers and/or only for transactions with shorter credit terms. NZECO may apply more stringent underwriting criteria and conditions of support. For example, any NZECO approval may require a higher level of risk sharing from the Insured and/or an extended claims waiting period.
With limited exceptions, we are off cover on all buyers in these countries.
