What type of medical insurance is required?

Applicants must provide evidence that they have health insurance to cover any medical treatment they may require whilst in Ireland for the full duration of their stay (i.e. 12 months or an alternative period of time as evidenced by their return flight tickets).

Many insurance policies will provide coverage abroad for a limited period of time only (e.g. 30 or 60 days) so applicants should take care to ensure that their insurance will cover them for the entire duration of their trip to Ireland.
