Dive Masters and Instructors working abroad now have access to the additional benefit of being able to extend their cover benefits up to a period of 365 days, on specific application and only as a Master member. To activate this extension benefit, an application will need to be submitted to the DAN office for approval whenever the period exceeds 90 consecutive days, for each successive 90-day period.
When working outside the DAN Southern Africa territory, there will be an additional fee to extend their membership benefits. If an extension is granted there will be an additional fee payable based on the duration and the destination of the trip up to a maximum of a 365 days’ continuous period away.
Dive Masters and Instructors working abroad must apply for Master membership within their country of residence within the DAN Southern Africa region prior to departure. To apply for a travel extension it is highly recommended to have additional travel insurance in place.
