Consular Posts of Schengen States approved the travel medical insurance policy schemes for corporate travels of travel insurance
companies on this list with 70 years of age as upper limit of appropriate full coverage. Acceptance of travel medical insurance policy
schemes for group travels (e.g. tour or incentive groups) with 70 years of age as upper limit of appropriate full coverage is conditioned by
the Consular Posts of Schengen States ability to check the coverage of individual members of these groups in the Travel Insurance Portals
of Non-Life Insurers of the General Insurance Council. Failure of this verification may lead the Consular Posts of Schengen States to the
request of submitting a new travel medical insurance policy for the visa procedure.
Visa applicants are advised to note that other travel medical insurances issued by Indian insurance companies are not accepted for Schengen visa procedure.
However, visa applicants may seek to obtain insurance in any other country where claims against the insurance company would be recoverable in a
Visa applicants for a Schengen visa for one or two entries shall prove that they are in possession of adequate and valid travel medical insurance to cover
any expenses, which might arise in connection with repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical attention and/or emergency hospital treatment or
death, during their stay(s) on the territory of the Schengen States. Visa applicants for a uniform visa for more than two entries (multiple entries) shall
prove that they are in possession of adequate and valid travel medical insurance covering the period of their first intended visit. In addition, such applicants
shall sign the statement, set out in the application form, declaring that they are aware of the need to be in possession of travel medical insurance for
subsequent stays. The insurance shall be valid throughout the territory of the Schengen States and cover the entire period of the person’s intended stay
or transit. The minimum coverage shall be EUR 30 000. Applicants shall, in principle, take out insurance in their country of residence. Where this is not
possible, they shall seek to obtain insurance in any other country. When assessing whether the insurance cover is adequate, consulates shall ascertain
whether claims against the insurance company would be recoverable in a Schengen State.
