Hi all

 

When applying for a D7, it says you need health insurance/health cover. Does the UK EHIC/GHIC count as that, or do we need a specific health insurance policy?

The general conditions for the issue of any visa require the applicant to have travel insurance. Travel insurance generally includes repatriation which the GHIC doesn't.

That's just what I think, if you contact VFS or the PT consulate they should be able to give you the definitive answer.

old-bloke is correct. You need travel insurance that covers repatriation and medical cover up to 30k euros. Axa insurance is one of the cheaper ones.
