Travel & Health Insurance

All CAS fellows are required to hold travel insurance covering their entire stay. The insurance should cover losses while traveling and during the stay, as well as costs relating to damages to your CAS accommodation.

Please contact your insurance company for details regarding your insurance and to arrange necessary coverage.

CAS does not offer health care benefits for visiting fellows. For short-term stays (less than three months), CAS fellows must hold insurance from their own country. Your travel insurance may have sufficient coverage for short-term stays.

For long-term stays, your citizenship determines further requirements. Please read the information below carefully.

    By Camilla Kottum Elmar,

    Citizens of non-EU/EEA countries staying in Norway for 3 to 12 months may apply for voluntary membership in the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme (NNHS) upon arrival in Norway.

    Fill out the form Application for voluntary membership in the NNHS during stay in Norway - NAV 02-07.05 (nav.no) and return it to your local social security office (nav.no) (Norwegian).

    Whether you will be granted coverage depends on whether your country has a social security agreement with Norway and the nature of your residence permit.

    Generally, if you are unable to obtain health insurance from your home country, you will be granted coverage in Norway. 

    Note: Membership in the NNHS may be restricted to urgent care coverage.
