Health, accidents, and liability insurance for internships and students in Spain


IMPORTANT: What type of insurance do I need?


After the Covid-19 pandemic situation, most of the governments in Europe have become more restrictive for accepting internationals to their countries, and they require full health insurance on many occasions.
As a general rule, ask your consulate or embassy what you need to apply for but keep in mind that:

- If you have to apply for STUDENT VISA: Consulate may ask you for a TRAVEL INSURANCE, which is cheaper and has less coverage. This was generally for internships valid before COVID-19.
- If you have to apply for AUTORIZACIÓN DE RESIDENCIA, the consulate will ask you for full health insurance, which price is higher. This is nowadays the most common insurance required when coming for an internship to Spain.

Why should I buy insurance?

In addition, the insurance is an extra guarantee for the student, in case of illness and/or accident, loss of luggage, airline tickets, and many others.
You may need to buy liability insurance as well to cover your internship activities while in the company.
