Health and Liability Insurance
GSI/FAIR is obliged to make sure that all guests (with guest agreements) are properly insured.
Your health insurance should meet the following requirements:
- Is valid in Germany during the time of your stay
- Covers unlimited costs for necessary medical treatment. When you have a SchengenVisa the limit of 30K is sufficient
- The certificate should be issued in an international format (such that we can understand whom, is insured when for what)
- The certificate should be issued no longer than 6 months ago
If your insurance does not meet all those requirements you will have to take out an additional health insurance.
If you don`t have a liability insurance covering Germany during the period of your stay, we highly recommend taking one. Here is explained why.
There are many companies offering private liability insurances.
GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH offers collective insurances for health and for liability:
