Schengen Visa Insurance – Webpage Relaunched!

International Student Insurance just relaunched the new Schengen Visa Insurance page which details what the Schengen area is, who needs to apply for a visa, and what the insurance requirements are.

The new page brings all the content together from what used to be, multiple articles. The new looks make it easier to find the information you need and a fun and engaging way.

If you or someone you know will be going to the Schengen Area, you may be required to get a Schengen Visa. This visa comes with a list of insurance requirements that you must meet in order to be issued your visa. To do this, you will need to submit a visa letter to the consulate from your insurance company. The requirements that need to be listed on the visa letter are as follows:

  • Minimum coverage of €30,000 (equivalent to $50,000 USD)
  • Coverage must be valid within the entire Schengen region and for the full duration of stay
  • The policy must cover any expenses which might arise in connection with emergency medical treatment, hospitalization, and/or repatriation (up to and including that of remains in the case of death)

Luckily, we have several plans that will meet your insurance requirements. To learn more, receive your official insurance visa letter, and apply please visit:
