Medical insurance for international visitors

The University of the Basque Country requests all international visitors on exchange programmes to be covered by a medical and civil liability insurance.

Proof of this insurance will be handed out at the Faculty or School at registration.

EU VISITORS: The Basque Publich Healthcare System usually covers European citizens holding their EUROPEAN HEALTHCARD (EHIC or E128) previously obtained in their home country.

HEALTH COVERAGE AGREEMENTS: Spain has passed Health Care agreements with a number of countries (Andorra, Brazil , Chile, Ecuador , Panama , Paraguay , Peru , Sweden, Morocco...). We recommend you get further details at the Spanish Embassy or Consulate, to know how to access this coverage.

OTHER NATIONALITIES: If no agreement exists with your home country, you will need to purchase a medical insurance IN FORCE THROUGHOUTYOUR ENTIRE VISIT.
