Insurance

All for­eign­ers are obliged to have a val­id med­ic­al travel insur­ance for the whole stay at our uni­ver­sity.

Stu­dents have to present the con­firm­a­tion of the med­ic­al travel insur­ance before the regis­tra­tion at the study depart­ment of the appro­pri­ate fac­ulty.

EU cit­izens

EU cit­izens stay­ing in the Czech Repub­lic longer than 90 days will present the European Health Insur­ance Card.

After their arrival they have to register at the health insur­ance com­pany called Všeo­becná zdra­vot­ní pojišťovna (Mírové náměstí 35/C, Ústí nad Labem, office hours Monday and Wed­nes­day 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tues­day and Thursday 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., and Fri­day 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.).

Non-EU cit­izens – excep­tions

As res­ult of being part of the Inter­na­tion­al Treaty on Cooper­a­tion in the Area of Health and Social Secur­ity, med­ic­al travel insur­ance is not required from cit­izens of:

  • Albania,
  • Croa­tia,
  • Mace­do­nia,
  • Montenegro,
  • Tunisia,
  • Tur­key,
  • Ser­bia.

How­ever, non-EU cit­izens included in this excep­tion, stay­ing in the Czech Repub­lic longer than 90 days have to present the E111 form.

After their arrival they have to register at the health insur­ance com­pany called Všeo­becná zdra­vot­ní pojišťovna (Mírové náměstí 35/C, Ústí nad Labem, office hours Monday and Wed­nes­day 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Tues­day and Thursday 8 a.m. – 3 p.m., and Fri­day 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.).

Non-EU cit­izens — no excep­tion

Non-EU cit­izens are obliged to have a med­ic­al travel insur­ance. We recom­mend one of the fol­low­ing Czech insur­ance com­pan­ies –  Max­ima, VZP, UNIQA, Ergo, or Slavia, because a med­ic­al travel insur­ance con­tract issued by any oth­er health insur­ance com­pany in Eng­lish or oth­er lan­guage has to be offi­cially trans­lated to the Czech lan­guage. The amount of the insur­ance bene­fit (the agreed insur­ance bene­fit lim­it for one insur­ance event) must be at least EUR 60 000, that being without an insur­ance reten­tion on the amount of the giv­en costs.
