For whom is this insurance intended?
The OOM Schengen Visitor Insurance provides an insurance for people who are visiting the Netherlands for a short period of time. Worries about unexpected health costs can be avoided by taking out an insurance for these expenses. When you apply for a Schengen visa it is mandatory to take out a health insurance.
The Schengen visa is a joint visa required by the Schengen countries that provides access to these countries. The validation of the Schengen visa can be limited to one country or to a number of countries in which the visa holder can travel. The maximum duration depends on the type of Schengen visa, but the most commonly issued visa has a maximum duration of 90 days.
When you will travel in the Schengen countries with a Schengen visa, you will need to proof that you have an insurance that provides sufficient medical coverage.
The requirements for medical insurance include:
• Minimum amount of coverage must be €30,000
• Insurance must be valid during the full period of the stay within the Schengen area.
• The insurance provides coverage for repatriation for medical reasons or for urgent medical care.
