Compulsory insurance when travelling abroad
Prior to departure, a person who is going abroad is obliged to take out insurance for medical expenses and accidents during his/her stay, at his/her own expense.
University staff and students who are travelling abroad, as well as their family members and accompanying persons, may take out insurance on preferential terms for the duration of their trip.
This insurance also covers issues due to coronavirus infection (namely COVID-19), regardless of the stage of the declared pandemic or epidemic.
