Applying for health insurance in Spain is a simple process, especially with ISR Barcelona. The best option is to sort out your health insurance before moving to Barcelona. You can apply as soon as you receive the admission letter from your school/university. Having health insurance is mandatory to get your visa. It is easier if the insurance company is Spanish. ISR Barcelona has partnered with a health insurance company that has a tailored package for students. We recommend two of the following health insurance options

Travel Assistance Insurance: We recommended this option if you stay in Barcelona for less than a year. It has a wide variety of coverage, but it is limited to less complex cases. Administrative processes regarding medical or hospital visits are more restricted than the Health Insurance option.

Health Insurance: We recommended this option if you stay in Barcelona for more than a year. Full coverage of all aspects of health and medical, immediate assistance, and no limitations on visits or service. You only have to show the card!
