Health insurance in Spain is mandatory during the entire duration of your studies.
Non EU/EEA nationals (third country nationals)
Third-country students are those whose nationality is from a country outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area.
Third-country students must provide insurance accepted by the Spanish consulates before arriving in Spain.
The insurance must cover the entire duration of the stay in Spain.
Studies shorter than 90 days
Students studying in Spain for less than 90 days do not need to apply for a student visa. A short-stay Schengen visa may be required depending on the nationality.
Studies longer than 90 days
Students studying in Spain for more than 90 days need to apply for a student visa. The visa is available for studies, training, internships, volunteer work, au pairs, or teaching assistants.
There are different insurance requirements from the Embassy/Consulate of Spain:
Student insurance with limitations of coverage
The insurance has limitations on the coverage. It covers you in case of an emergency when you are studying abroad. You need to check with the Embassy or Consulate for the insurance requirements first and then apply for the suitable product.
Comprehensive student insurance with unlimited coverage
Students from EU/EEA countries can request in their home country the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Thanks to this card, EU/EEA nationals can benefit from the same cover as locals by the Spanish state healthcare system.
The EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance. It does not cover travel protection, search and rescue, repatriation to the home country, emergency dental treatments, assistance etc. Private insurance is highly recommended in Spain also for EU/EEA nationals during the entire stay in Spain.
