European Travel and Schengen Visa Medical Insurance Requirements

With the enactment of the Schengen Agreement, traveling to one or more countries within Europe became much simpler. Not only did the agreement eliminate the need for passport and other border controls within the Schengen area, the medical insurance requirements are the same for each country. When traveling for business, study, or tourism for a stay of up to 90 days in a 180-day period to one or more of the 26 Schengen countries (listed below), proof of medical insurance must accompany your Visa application and meet, at a minimum, the following criteria:

  • Medical coverage of at least €30,000
  • Emergency medical evacuation
  • Repatriation of mortal remains to your home country
  • Coverage for the entire duration of your stay

One of the most common reasons Visa applications are denied is the lack of compliant medical insurance. All of ASA's medical insurance plans are from A rated insurers and exceed the requirements of the Schengen Visa. Our plans feature deductibles from $0 to $2,500 and coverages ranging from $50,000 to unlimited. As soon as you select your plan and your purchase is complete, you will receive a confirmation email that contains a link to print your Visa letter, which must accompany your Visa application.

For more than 20 years, ASA agents have specialized in finding the most economical medical insurance plan to meet all legal requirements. International insurance is our only business, and our mission is to give you quality protection around the world.

Schengen countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
