Travel medical insurance

Applicants must hold a travel insurance policy to cover possible expenses in connection with a return for health reasons or death, indispensable medical treatment or acute hospitalisation during the visit.

The insurance policy must cover all Schengen countries, and the minimum policy coverage is EUR 30,000. The insurance policy must be valid for the same period as the visa. The validity of the visa may be shortened if the insurance policy does not cover the entire period.

All applicants that have been granted multiple entry visas must be able to prove they hold such an insurance every time they wish to enter Schengen.

The insurance may be purchased in Ghana or abroad. Below is a list of insurance companies in Ghana offering such a cover (the list may not be exhaustive):
