Visa requirements

Non EU/EEA Students – French student visa, immigration, insurance requirement

Each country has his own regulation concerning immigration visa and social security for international students in Europe.

France has a social security (statutory health insurance) and is applicable only to foreign students who are aged max. 28 years old before the 1st. October. The social security offers a limited coverage (70% of General practitioners invoices, 70% Radiology, 60% analysis, no transport costs…).

Foreign students with nationalities outside of EU-EEA are highly recommended to apply a private insurance plan like Swisscare’s Studentpass international in order to :

  • obtain the visa for France  (min € 30’000 or higher for long-term visa)
  • have a complete cover for acute medical treatments up to the plan max. sum
  • have travel protection in France and Europe (Schengen countries)
  • have a third party liability insurance and assistance

All students over 28 years old need a private insurance. For these students, the plan 100’000 or 500’000 is recommended.

This insurance plan is not renewable automatically and pre-existing conditions are excluded from the insurance benefits.

EU/EEA and Swiss Students with EHIC

EU/EEA and Swiss students must present their European health insurance card (EHIC) or its replacement certificate to prove eligibility for France social security. The EHIC can be requested by the social security in the country of their nationality.

Please note that EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance. It does not cover any travel protection, search and rescue, repatriation to the home country, emergency dental treatments, assistance… Studentpass international plan will be a very affordable solution to have a full protection while you are studying in EU/EEA Countries.

Medical cover

Studentpass international covers mainly acute sickness and injury during your stay abroad. This means that for all unforeseen sickness or injuries, you can consult a general practitioner, specialist or visit a public hospital. For minor emergencies, we suggest to visit a general practitioner first. You will avoid long time waiting delays in an hospital emergency reception.

All benefits are limited in insurance sum. Please see our table comparison here under. Note that dental treatments like all other insurance covers are limited to an emergency that require immediate intervention of a dentiste. Routine dentist check, filling, krone, tooth replacement or cleaning are not covered.

Medicine is covered if prescribed by a recognized practitioner. Note the covered medicine must be in the standards of the western countries.

Get round the hours medical assistance

Studentpass international propose a complete travel protection that includes assistance 24/7. Search and rescue, repatriation to the home country or repatriation of mortal remain, luggage, ambulance transport, medical advice …

The assistance line 24 / 7 also provide advice in case of sickness and injury and deliver the GOP (Guarantee of payment) for hospital admission.

Think community

Once you are insured through one of the Swisscare products, you are paying an insurance premium for an event of which most certainly hope it will never occur. The premium you pay will fall into a community fund (insurance).

The majority of the members of this community contribute like you for few who are in needs while they are sick or have an accident.

You participate like all members of the community into this fund with a financial contribution because there is a risk that one day you are also in needs and suffer from an illness or an accident for which the cost of treatments would be impossible to bear on your own. In that case you will then profit from the fund (insurance) of the others members which will pay for you.

Translated documents in EN / DE / FR

Swisscare members are spread worldwide. More than 7500 languages are currently existing. This is why Swisscare like the majority of international insurance providers or insurers ask their member to submit invoices in English ( Swisscare inTrust claim service accept also German or French). If your invoices are in a different language kindly translate the most important details and submit this translation along with the invoices. (Legal translation is not required).
