On this basis the company is able to write insurance in all US states and affiliated territories.

Our branch in Australia allows us to write business as a locally admitted insurer under the authorisation of the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).

Writing on a non-admitted basis

If the territory you are considering is not mentioned above, it may still be possible to write business on a non-admitted basis (i.e. without having a license in the respective country). Some countries do allow non-admitted companies to write business with or without prior approval from the regulator or government on an individual risk basis. Inter Hannover examines on a case-by-case basis whether writing non-admitted insurance is possible for a specific risk in a specific country.
