Health insurance

Before you travel to the Netherlands, you should make sure that you are properly insured against risks. A health care insurance is one of the conditions you will have to meet to receive your residence permit.

There are three options for health insurance: 
- Your insurance policy in your home country covers your stay in the Netherlands. 
- You take out a new or special insurance policy for your stay in the Netherlands. 
- You are admitted to the Dutch national health insurance scheme because you work in the Netherlands. 

Your own insurance policy 
The Netherlands has signed treaties regarding health insurance with a number of countries, including most of the member states of the EU. If you are insured under the national health insurance scheme of one of these countries, your insurance company can provide you with either an international claims form or with a European Health Insurance Card. You can find more information about insurances on
