Health insurance

Please note that you are entitled the following two health insurances free of charge. You can get both of them.

1. Hungarian social security called TAJ card
2. Private insurance with an insurance company

3. Personal travel insurance valid from departure to a 2 months time period.

Please note that you get the TAJ card once it’s ready but it takes about 8 weeks to get the card. The private insurance does not cover all health related costs as you can read below. It only covers health issues up to certain HUF (during the insurance period). Therefore we recommend you to purchase a personal Travel insurance which is valid for a 2 months period for covering the extra costs of any health related costs over the private insurance cover until your TAJ card will be ready.
