Am I required to purchase insurance and pay a fee for my UN passport and applicable taxes upon hire and /or on deployment?
I moved your post to a new topic - I think these are relevant questions. In principle, on a UN staff contract you will not need to pay for any UN-related item. I.e. your UN income is typically tax exempt, there is no cost for a UN passport etc. If you are ever contacted to advance/pay some money to somebody and it is claimed this is on behalf of the UN, it typically is a scam!
Now on insurances, this is an interesting topic: on non-staff contracts often you will be required to obtain your own insurances. Happy to discuss this topic in a separate thread further.
Were you asked to pay for something by somebody?
I'm Sebastian from the UN Job List. I know about the UN Job List and also a little about the UN in general.
