Health Insurance For Visas

Ad type: Announcement
Date added: 19 May 2021

It is now definitive that an EHIC / GHIC is accepted to meet the health insurance requirement for a 4 to 6 month visa. Though not for a 6 to 12 month visa. Published on the TLS visa processing website. Also details on the 180-days-in-france website.
I haven’t seen this mentioned in The Local news yet – announced 11 May.

  1. As someone trying to get a 12-month visa, you need full health insurance not travel Insurance and you must have cover of at least €30,000 and repatriation. In addition any health insurance must cover pre-existing conditions even though these are covered by the eh1c/gh1c, so it’s a very expensive exercise and so far has taken me more than 2 months to not meet the requirements!
