In the case of international work travel, the insurance also applies during interruptions due to holiday leave or a leave of absence. The interruption must not exceed the amount of time of the work travel. The period may also not exceed 14 days. Read more at the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency (external link).
For work travel or stays in another country of more than three months, URA applies instead. Special travel insurance is taken out with the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency (external link).
For example, if you are travelling on a STINT grant with a leave of absence, you can take out special travel insurance with the Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency (external link).
Personal insurance card and EU card
In order to be able to prove that you are covered by work travel insurance in the event of illness, you must bring a personal insurance certificate (Swedish State Business Travel Insurance Certificate) with you when on work trips outside the EU. Such a certificate should be requested from HR Payroll.
Anyone travelling to an EU/EEA country or to Switzerland should carry a European Health Insurance Card. With the EU card, you pay only the patient fees paid by your own country's residents. The card can be ordered from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (external link).
Supplementary work travel insurance/cancellation coverage
Work travel ordered through the university's travel agency are paid by invoice through Diners Tac, which has a complementary travel insurance. The insurance includes basic insurance and cancellation coverage. More information about the insurance (link).
