Make sure that your health insurance is valid throughout your stay in Sweden. Medical services in Sweden are expensive if you are not covered by health insurance. A doctor’s appointment, for example, may cost around SEK 1700, but with insurance, it will only cost you SEK 150-300.
FAS+ Insurance for fee-paying students
When you have been accepted to LiU and paid your tuition fee, LiU will inform the Swedish Migration Agency about FAS+ coverage. Therefore, you do not need to provide any additional documentation regarding FAS+ insurance when you apply for a visa or residence permit. For further questions about FAS+ insurance, contact LiU’s International Office: email@example.com
Please note: If you bring family members to Sweden, they will not be covered by FAS+ and they will need their own insurance from your home country.
Reciprocal Health Care Agreements
If you are a citizen of Algeria, Australia, Chile, Israel, Québec (Canada) or Turkey, you benefit from a reciprocal agreement for public medical services. The agreements often only apply for urgent medical care, but you should check with your country’s health care authority what is included. You may only need to show your passport and a certificate from the social insurance office in your home country to receive care in Sweden.
