Quite possibly the most important topic for your personal safety & health is a good medical insurance that will cover you during your time in abroad. This is especially true for those who will come from outside the European Union and who will require specific coverage. EU citizens do not necessarily need private insurance but it is recommended.
While we normally suggest having private coverage, these times it’s more important than ever. Having access to the private healthcare sector could help avoid potential waiting times and language barriers, among many other benefits that the private sector offers. A great example of these benefits is popular private hospitals, like HM Hospitales. Who provide a personal medical translator on site for their patients. These translators specialize in international patients at no extra cost. So long as you have an international private insurance.
