The importance of health insurance for your residence in Spain



In the complex process of applying for a residence permit in Spain, one of the fundamental requirements, depending on the type of permit, is to have health insurance that supports our healthcare coverage during the period of residence or stay in the country. It is in this context that we recommend Mapfre services as the smartest choice to ensure your well-being while living in the country.

During any migration process, careful health planning is not only essential to avoid administrative delays but also ensures the peace of mind and safety of the individual in their new life in Spain.

Whether you are applying for a study visa, tourism, a non-profit temporary residence permit, or a community card, the fundamental question arises: What type of insurance do you need to obtain the coveted authorization?

The answer varies depending on the type of permit and the duration of your stay in Spain. If your plan is to stay for 3 months or less, travel insurance is essential. However, if your stay exceeds 90 days with the intention of residing in Spain, you will need a private health insurance contract that covers the entire period of residence.

Mapfre stands out as the optimal choice for several key reasons:

Wide National Coverage: As a leading company, Mapfre operates throughout the Spanish territory, offering a comprehensive network of medical services to ensure your care anywhere in the country.

Comparable to Public Health: Mapfre's private medical coverage is comparable to the standards of the Spanish public health system, covering everything from routine consultations to emergencies and hospitalizations.

No Copayments or Waiting Periods: Mapfre is committed to offering policies without copayments or waiting periods, eliminating additional payments for consultations and ensuring coverage from the beginning of the validity of your insurance.

It's not just about selecting insurance, but establishing an alliance that prioritizes your health and well-being at every step of your life in Spain. Beyond meeting administrative requirements, Mapfre represents the essential guarantee for a safe and healthy existence.

A worry-free experience!
