Which Nationals Are Required to Purchase Travel Insurance for a Schengen Visa?

Nationals of any country who are applying for a Schengen visa are generally required to purchase travel insurance. This requirement applies to both visa-exempt nationals and nationals who require a visa to enter the Schengen area. The purpose of travel insurance is to ensure that visitors have adequate coverage for any medical emergencies, accidents, repatriation, and other unforeseen circumstances that may occur during their stay in the Schengen area.

It’s important to note that the specific requirements and conditions for travel insurance may vary depending on the country where you are applying for the Schengen visa. It’s recommended to check the official website of the embassy or consulate of the Schengen country you are applying to for accurate and up-to-date information on the travel insurance requirements for your specific nationality.
