Schengen Visa Health Insurance
Every year we receive thousands of inquiries from customers searching for Schengen visa health insurance when travelling to Europe. Their goal is to meet the requirements for their visa application while having medical coverage while visiting any one of the Schengen countries in Europe.
For foreigners to qualify for a Schengen visa, medical travel insurance which meets minimum standards set by their destination country’s embassy must be in effect and provide sufficient coverage against costs related to repatriation for medical reasons or urgent health attention, hospital treatment or death during their stay(s) within a Member State territory.
European Travel Insurance or Schengen Visa Health Insurance is not only required of those applying for a schengen visa but is highly recommended to any traveler planning on visiting any member state in the Schengen Zone. A minimum level of coverage of 30,000 euros is mandatory but for longer stays it may be wiser to purchase policies with higher limits of protection – these may offer peace of mind during their journey through Europe.
Cost of Schengen visa travel insurance varies according to several factors such as policy length and age, as well as selecting an amount for medical costs you must cover before your insurance will start covering them. Therefore, it’s advisable to opt for an affordable schengen visa insurance plan with lower deductible costs for optimal savings on premium costs.
