Health Insurance while Studying in Iceland

Sjúkratrygging við nám á Íslandi
It is important to familiarize yourself with your health insurance entitlement before travelling abroad to study.

Persons who have been domiciled in Iceland for at least six months are regarded as having Icelandic health insurance.

Individuals from Nordic countries who intend to study in Iceland for a shorter period of time should make sure to obtain and bring a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which verifies that the person has health insurance in his/her home state.
