Do we need medical insurance of 12 months for VISA application

Post by RANJIT KUMAR KATAKAM » Wed Jul 10, 2019 12:57 am

Hi ,

Am applying VISA for critical skills employment. Do we need to produce medical health insurance for 12 months as part of VISA documents. I did not receive any such documents from my employer. Below details are mentioned in visa requirements.

https://www.dfa.ie/irish-embassy/india/ ... uirements/

Notice to All Employment Visa Applicants

You must submit evidence that you have obtained medical health insurance for 12 months in Ireland. If your employer is not providing you with medical health insurance, then you must submit documentation in relation to your medical health insurance policy for Ireland. If this is not submitted your application will be refused.

Can some one confirm about the same.

Yes. This is a new mandatory requirement. Most of the employers are providing you with health insurance. If they are providing, it might be a company plan and they should give you the details on it. If they are not providing, you have to take your own medical insurance. There are three companies here you can get the insurance listed below. Select a plan that suits you. You can just choose the minimum one, which costs you around 400 Euros per year.

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your quick information. Do we need to take before applying VISA..
In Visa check list they have mentioned after VISA approval also we can take . PFA snapshot in attachments.

Also i have attached the PDF for the same. 11 th Point talks about the same.

Could you please confirm whether I need to take medical insurance before applying VISA or can take after the VISA approval?

Best Regards,
Ranjit Kumar.

That checklist was not updated with the new requirements it seems. The new rule says you need to take it before the submission of documents. I assume they have done that because most of the employment visas are approved without any problems.

However, to ensure that, please use the form and enquire this to the embassy https://www.dfa.ie/irish-embassy/india/contact-us/ and update here.

Hi,

Yesterday i have made inquiry and got the below reply.

Dear Sir,

We request you to thoroughly check the checklist available on our website, regarding your query, as the visa office does not guide applicant's of any documentation that needs to be submitted with the application.
Regards,
Visa Office,

Embassy of Ireland | C17 Malcha Marg, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi, India.
Please see our website https://www.dfa.ie/irish-embassy/india/ ... rish-visa/ for full information on how to apply for a visa for Ireland.
The Visa Office does not provide a telephone enquiry service. VFS will continue to operate a visa phone helpline on behalf of the Visa Office, they can be contacted on + 91 22 67866033.


Now am confused whether to ahead without the insurance to submit VISA application

Hi,

Am looking this information specific to critical skills work permit not for the student VISA/ General permit VISA.

If any one recently applied visa with critical skills work permit let me know.

Thanks in advance.
