Business travel insurance
An employee or contractor at the University is covered by the government’s business travel insurance for all domestic and foreign official journeys. The entire agreement can be studied at kammarkollegiet.se There is also an English website.
Healthcare benefits for official journeys
If you are travelling to a country within the EU or to another treaty company, you should carry a certificate from the Social Insurance Office indicating that you belong to the Swedish Social Insurance Office, to ensure that you will receive medical care in accordance with EU regulations or treaty respectively, i.e. without incurring any cost other than a patient’s fee (if applicable).
If you are travelling to a non EU country / treaty country, you should have a personal insurance certificate (Swedish State Business Travel Insurance Certificate). Insurance certificates of this kind can be obtained from Kammarkollegiet and are issued by the authority in question. The purpose of this certificate is to ensure that the traveller will quickly receive any emergency medical attention through the health centre/hospital being able to determine that there is an insurance that will cover the costs associated with treatment. In certain countries hospitals do not provide adequate care until they can be assured that they will receive payment.
Ask Ingrid Forsmark for a personal insurance certificate.
