Along with the other required documents needed to get a Schengen visa, all applicants have to present a medical insurance valid for the Schengen territory (regulation of the European Union: decision 2004/17/CE of December 22nd, 2003).
A letter from your insurance company is required. This letter has to mention that you will be covered in Europe for any medical, evacuation and repatriation expenses during your whole stay. The medical expenses have to be covered for at least $40,000 or 30,000 euros.
Please kindly note that a photocopy of your insurance card will not be sufficient enough to meet the above requirements.
You have to contact your insurance company to get this letter. If your insurance company does not provide such a letter/coverage, please purchase an international insurance prior to your appointment at the visa section and do not forget to bring the letter. Insurances like Seven Corners, Axa assistance, MEDEX, Europ assistance usually meet the Schengen requirements.
We kindly remind you that the insurance coverage letter is a compulsory document. Applicants missing this document will systematically have their visa denied.
