Travel Insurance

Our travel insurance has two options:

Option 1: For people coming to Austria for less than 6 months, who do not need a visa at all or apply for C-Visa (entry visa).
Option 2: Students who apply for their residence permit application to be allowed to study in Austria or get 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:

2. Your Price:

 

€ 2.20 / day

Step 2: Choose the right option:

If you are coming to Austria to visit or study for less than 6 months and 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).

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 within 3 working days.

This option is for you if you need to apply for the residence permit permission before coming to Austria or if you need the D-Visa to enter Austria.
This product is valid for students under the age of 34 years.

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 provided by most companies 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). We recommend to take the travel insurance for at least 1 month (better 2 months) so you have enough time to get your bank account in Austria (required for the student basic and plus) and get our long-term insurance for your residence permit.

If you go to a private doctor, you have to pay the bill first. After that just make a photo with your smartphone and send us the bill via our Request Refund button in the navigation header. Please make sure that there is a diagnostics (Diagnose) on your bill, otherwise we cannot make a refunding. The refund normally takes about 2 weeks to process.

We recommend to take the travel insurance for at least 1 month after your arrival date – to be on the safe side 2 months. You need to get your Austrian Bank Account in order to get our long-term insurance and that may take a few days/weeks
