About the Schengen insurance
What is a Schengen insurance?
A Schengen insurance is a travel insurance that covers the requirements of the Schengen visa process. To receive a Schengen visa, travellers must proof that an insurance will take over the costs of repatriation, medical treatment etc. Without a valid proof of being insured for the Schengen area, travellers will not receive a Schengen visa!
Why do I need a special insurance?
Schengen states (almost all European countries) want to ensure that travellers are able to pay all health and emergency costs themselves. Without insurance, the cost of medical care and the like would be borne by the host country. The Schengen members therefore demand that the guests have a Schengen insurance in order to reduce the costs on their side.
Who checks if i am insured or not?
If you need a Schengen visa to enter Europe and the Schengen area, your application process will sooner or later require you to visit a visa center, an embassy or a consulate to hand in your application along with all requried documents. This is where authorities check on your insurance status. You will have to provide a valid insurance certificate that is covering your trip from the first until the last day. If you can not provide a certificate, your visa application will not be processed and you won’t be able to receive a visa.
Are there any special requirements?
Anyone can get a Schengen travel insurance. Depending on your age and the duration of your trip, costs will vary however, there are no requirements for eligibility.
