Travel insurance

1. Description of Schengen travel health insurance

Due to a regulation of the European Union (Decision 2004/17/CE of December 22nd 2003), there is a requirement to hold a travel health insurance, which is a compulsory document.

The travel health insurance should be:

  • Valid for whole Schengen area if you apply for short stay visa
  • Valid with a minimum cover of € 30,000 in order to face any expenses that may arise in connection with your repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical attention or emergency hospital treatment. The travel health insurance should fully cover the period of your stay in the whole Schengen Area.

 

2. Where to purchase a travel health insurance

You may go to an authorized insurance company to purchase a Schengen travel health insurance meeting the requirements for Schengen visa.

In order to facilitate the selection of compliant Schengen travel insurances, the self-service insurance platforms managed by a third-party service provider are available as an optional service for your conveniences.

      

Please note that this optional service is provided by third party service provider. For further inquiry, please contact the service hotline indicated on the dedicated website.
