Every student is required to have health insurance coverage while enrolled at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, CTU Prague.
If you are coming from the EU, Norway, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Iceland, bring your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and register at the Insurance Centre for Foreigners upon arrival. The centre will issue an official document which will ensure you to get health service for free whilst in the Czech Republic.
If you are coming from a non-EU country, in order to get a visa, you are obliged to have health insurance coverage. Upon arrival in the Czech Republic you have to get a “long-term complex health insurance” for the time of your enrolment. The average price for one year insurance is approximately 300 EUR. There are several health insurance companies which offer health insurance for foreigners, e.g. VZP/PVZP, Maxima/AXA, Slavia, UNIQA, and Victoria Volksbanken.
For further information regarding the medical insurance of expats living in the Czech Republic, please visit the following website where you can choose from a variety of insurance plans. We can recommend you TARIFF KOMPLEX EXTRA from the UNIQA insurance company.
