Medical Cost Insurance

Now it is easier to buy a Medical Cost Insurance at Sjova.  It is not necessary any more to complete a questionnaire with medical information.  Instead you can apply for the insurance on our website, sjova.is, pay the premium and we send a confirmation to the Directorate of Immigration. In the application process you are informed about the fact that the insurance does not cover diseases diagnosed or accidents occurred before the affect date of the policy.

All for­eign cit­i­zens from coun­tries out­side EU or EFTA who ap­ply for a res­i­dence per­mit in Ice­land, are re­quired to ob­tain a Med­ical Cost In­sur­ance which is valid for at least six months or un­til they have earned rights to be cov­ered by the Ice­landic So­cial Se­cu­rity Scheme.
