IMPORTANT: Our travel insurance has two options:
Option 1: For people coming to Austria for less than 6 months (D-Visa), who do not need a visa at all or apply for C-Visa (entry visa).
Option 2: Students who apply for their initial residence permit (in their home country) to be allowed to study in Austria in combination with their D-Visa in order to enter Austria.
Both options have the same price: €2,20/day.
Both options are 100% accepted for the Visa purpose and are officially approved!
Please find below the details to the two options.
Step 1: Calculate your price:
1. Pick your dates:
2. Your Price:
Step 2: Choose the right option:
If you are coming to Austria to visit or study for less than 6 months (D-Visa), don’t need a visa or only the C-Visa to enter, this is the right product for you.
Our travel insurance is a no-limit insurance and has you covered for your time in Austria (see “Downloads” for the detailled coverage).
So our coverage is much more than the required “Minium €30.000”
The price of the insurance is €2,20/day.
If you press “buy now” you will start the order process. In the process you can enter the start and end date of the insurance. The payment of the insurance is via credit card. You will get your insurance confirmation via e-mail latest within 3 working days.
This option is for you if you need to apply for the residence permit permission before coming to Austria and if you need the D-Visa to enter Austria.
This product is valid for students under the age of 34 years. If you are over 34, please select Option 1.
This product fullfils all the legal requirements for the embassies and the residence permit department (ex. MA35 in Vienna). In the order process you need to answer 4 health questions. If you can rightfully answer all 4 questions, we can guarantee that – if your health status does not change – we can insure you as soon as you are in Austria with our student basic or student plus product. This is necessary so that you have prove that you will insure yourself sufficiently according to the Austrian law regulations, as soon as you are in Austria and pick up the residence permit (the travel insurance is not sufficient once your status changes from D-Visa to residence permit).
With this confirmation the travel insurance is valid for your visa process.
You DO NOT need to take the travel insurance for the entire duration of your stay, just until you get the long-term insurance (student basic or plus).
How the timing works:
You are required to have the valid travel insurance as soon as you ENTER Austria and for min. 15 days IN Austria in order go get your bank account and the all-risk long-term insurance that is valid for the residence permit.
How we recommend you pick the right date (in case you don’t have a plane ticket already and know the exact date when you will arrive):
If you think you will be coming to Austria on the 1st of September, we recommend to pick the start date of insurance at least for the 20th of August and until the 20th of September. This give you some flexibility to come to Austria and you have some time to get your bank account IN Austria. (we can help you with the bank account at: www.feelslikehome.at/bank)
