Sometimes we are asked questions about the Schengen travel visa and the necessary travel insurance.

In many cases, traveling in the age group is 20 to 30 years, may be students, and therefore the person is usually not covered by any other plan.

(Although I just said that, keep in mind that many people who are covered by a local medical aid from South Africa can access a medical certificate through the international travel benefit of medical aid. In many of these cases, this meets the requirements for Visa and would be acceptable in which case this article is not addressed to you).

For those without medical assistance coverage who want to get a Visa for the Schengen area, they need to get travel medical insurance to get a Visa (an offer is not accepted).

The Schengen area is the following countries:

Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

The main requirements for Schengen visa coverage issued by the European Union are:

- Minimum medical coverage of 30,000 ??
- The policy number and date of coverage must appear in the document
- Quotes are not accepted
- The insurance must cover the costs of emergency treatment, hospitalization, emergency transport by ambulance and medical evacuation back to the home country.

A company we use has designed a product specifically to meet these requirements.

The agent can catch the insurance online, not the client (the client would fill out a simple 2-page application).

Insurance premiums are cheaper than most insurance coverage. There are several options available depending on how long you want to travel. The product meets the requirements of the European Union.

My reason for writing this article is that there are so many websites on the web that offer insurance coverage that it is difficult for anyone to choose a product. When I found a product that meets the requirements, although not too expensive (many people applying for a visa are students, as I mentioned earlier), I thought it was better to get the attention of the audience who were on look for this type of coverage.

In short, if you apply for the Schegen visa ... you do not need to take the most expensive medical insurance option to meet EU requirements.
