Insurance for Europe ONLINE

After obtaining a residence permit in Slovakia, each foreigner must be insured in accordance with EU legislation and requirements. It doesn’t matter on what basis a residence permit was obtained, it can be studies, business, employment. Everyone must be insured.

Citizens of countries with a visa-free regime (Ukraine, Georgia) will need insurance immediately after obtaining a residence permit. And citizens of countries with a visa regime (Russia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, etc.) will need insurance even at the stage of obtaining a visa D at the consulate of Slovakia in their country. The consulate requires providing, along with other documents, a valid insurance policy. Citizens of visa countries need to take care of insurance in advance. Then you can provide the same insurance to the foreign police in Slovakia.

Which insurance to chose?

If you receive a residence permit as a private entrepreneur (živnostník, podnikateľ) or an employee (zamestnanec), then you (and your children) are required to take out state insurance. There are only three state insurance companies in Slovakia: Všeobecná zdravotná poisťovňa, Dôvera, Union. State insurance implies a monthly fixed payment. The amount of payment depends only on the financial performance of the insured. In 2019, this minimum payment is 66.78 euros / month.

If you receive a residence permit for family reunification, or as a student, or as the director of a company (spoločnosť), in this case you can get only commercial insurance. They are completely different, depending on the package of services, the term and many other factors. Commercial insurance is bought immediately for a certain period. It is important to ensure that there are no gaps between the periods of insurance.
