Who needs Private Insurance?
Anyone who wants to receive a National Visa in Germany must apply for health insurance, unless their country have a health insurance agreement with Germany that overwrites this. Employees and university students under 30 years old would be able to join the public health insurance funds. However, there are some categories of people that are not eligible for that type of insurance and therefore would need to apply for private insurance.
- Language students
- Working holiday visitors
- Study applicants
- University students that are older than 30 years old
- Students that have already studied more than 14 semesters
- Students enrolled at a German university which is not state-recognized
If you belong to one of the above-mentioned categories, then private insurance from DR-WALTER is a perfect option for you.
