Schengen Visa Medical Insurance

What is Schengen Travel Insurance?

Schengen travel insurance is mandatory travel medical insurance for anyone traveling to the Schengen Area of Europe on a Schengen visa. You will be required to show proof of proper health insurance coverage when applying for your Schengen visa.

Why Do I Need Travel Health Insurance When Traveling?

In addition to the requirement, you need travel health insurance while traveling because it is unlikely that your domestic health insurance will be accepted in a foreign country. Without insurance coverage, you may be stuck paying a bill you cannot afford if you get sick or become injured on an international trip.

  • Medical coverage of at least Euro 30,000 (USD $31,911 as of April 14, 2024).
