Rich in culture and spanning across 9 time zones, it’s no surprise that students are choosing to further their education in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and across Russia. The country is home to more than 2% of the world’s population and 160 different nationalities, helping to create an exceptionally diverse culture perfect for students.
As an international student planning to study or visit Russia, you will need to show proof of health insurance coverage as part of your visa application. The application form includes a section where you need to indicate you have health insurance coverage, and then you will need to attach a copy of your insurance confirmation or visa confirmation letter from your insurance company. This letter comes standard in many plans, like our Atlas Travel option, helping making your insurance buying experience as easy as possible.
This means that you won’t have a checklist of items that your policy must include, instead you will simply need to show that you have insurance coverage. While it may be tempting to simply purchase the cheapest option, it’s imperative that you evaluate your student insurance plan carefully to ensure it will provide enough coverage while you’re away from home.
Some countries have agreements that cover the cost of essential medical treatment while outside of your home country. While can be helpful, keep in mind that it won’t cover medical evacuation or repatriation - just medical care.
