Health Insurance in Estonia for EU/ Non-EU citizens

  • EU Citizen: You can apply for a European health insurance card (EHICs) or a substitute certificate of an EU health insurance card. If you have valid health insurance in your home country, you should apply for health insurance in your home country before arriving in Estonia.

  • Non-EU citizen: As a non-EU/EEA/Switzerland student, you need to have the required health insurance in Estonia for continuing your study. After arriving in Estonia, you will be responsible for managing a health insurance service provider.
