Health Insurance

Saturday, August 29, 2009

It is a requirement that applicants must show that they are in possession of adequate and valid health insurance before issuance of visas to Norway. This is a requirement for issuance of visas in all Schengen countries.

The health insurance must cover expenses in connection with repatriation due to medical reasons, medical expenses and emergency hospitalisation. The insurance policy must be valid for all Schengen countries, and the minimum coverage must be 30.000 EURO.

The documents of the valid insurance must be brought to the Embassy at the time of endorsement of the visa. Thus, it is not a demand that the insurance is presented when applying for a visa.

As of now, there are at least 14 companies offering an insurance, which covers the requirements, see attached list. There might be other companies that offer the specific Schengen health insurance that the Embassy is not aware of. Applicants may use any insurance company, if this company can offer an insurance that fulfil the specified requirements.
