IMPORTANT NEWS

Our cooperation with the German Embassy and Consulates in China has ended.

Since February 20, 2019 TLScontact is no longer accepting visa applications on behalf of the German missions in China.

Applicants whose applications are still processed by the German missions should contact the German missions regarding their application status.

The website and locations of the new service provider for visa applications are published through the website of the Embassy of Germany.

 

1. Description of Schengen travel health insurance

Due to a regulation of the European Union (Decision 2004/17/CE of December 22nd 2003), there is a requirement to hold a travel health insurance, which is a compulsory document.

The travel health insurance should be:

  • Valid for whole Schengen area if you apply for short stay visa
  • Valid with a minimum cover of € 30,000 in order to face any expenses that may arise in connection with your repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical attention or emergency hospital treatment. The travel health insurance should fully cover the period of your stay in the whole Schengen Area.

 

2. Where to purchase a travel health insurance

You may go to an authorized insurance company to purchase a Schengen travel health insurance meeting the requirements for Schengen visa.

In order to facilitate the selection of compliant Schengen travel insurances, the self-service insurance platforms managed by a third-party service provider are available as an optional service for your conveniences.

      

Please note that this optional service is provided by a third party service provider. For further inquiry, please contact the service hotline indicated on the dedicated website.
