Why get Schengen visa insurance?

First of all, it offers the possibility for foreign nationals to travel freely within the Schengen area. This visa alone is sufficient for travelling around the different countries that are members of the Schengen area. However, in order to obtain it, certain conditions must be met. Among them, Schengen visa insurance is one of the most important.

This insurance mainly covers medical and repatriation expenses or even those for emergency hospitalisation resulting from any accidents or illnesses that may occur during your trip. It is a necessary and obligatory measure for acquiring a Schengen visa, whatever the reason for your travel (family visit, tourism, business, etc.).

Schengen visa insurance has a duration of validity that is equivalent to that of the trip, which must not exceed 90 days. It is subject to minimum cover of €30,000 and must be accepted by all the countries that are members of the Schengen area.
