A summary of the insurance

These are the most important features of OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance:

  • Insurance for a stay abroad for up to 2 years
  • Worldwide cover, including if you visit the Netherlands while you’re away
  • Insurance with 3 different types of healthcare cover
  • Optional cover, for example for travel, household contents and legal assistance

Who is the insurance suitable for?

Health insurance

If you’re a Dutch national and you’re going to stay abroad temporarily, your personal situation will determine whether or not you will have to keep your Dutch national health insurance. If you can’t keep your Dutch national health insurance, you can still have extensive insurance for healthcare costs with OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance.

If you have to keep your Dutch national health insurance, OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Healthcare Insurance could be useful addition. For example, if you’re going to a country where…

  • Medical care is expensive: With Dutch national health insurance, you will never receive a higher reimbursement than what you would have had from the Dutch national health insurance.
  • The situation could be dangerous: We also reimburse medical expenses as a result of war and kindred risks.
  • They ask for an amended insurance statement: We will send you an amended statement for a number of countries.

Non-life insurance

You may experience setbacks abroad, just as you might in the Netherlands. If your belongings are stolen, or a family member becomes seriously ill, you'll be glad to know that this is also insured. You can simply buy new items, or travel back to the Netherlands, without incurring huge costs.

How long is the insurance valid?

OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance has a flexible duration from 1 day to a maximum of 2 years.

If your stay abroad is longer than you expected, you can extend the insurance once by a maximum of 2 months, providing you are not insured for more than 2 years. If you do not know exactly how long you will be away, then it will be better to take out the insurance for a longer period. Because you can cancel the insurance daily. This avoids the risk of forgetting to renew your insurance and not being insured when you need to be.

If you already know that you will be staying abroad for more than 2 years, OOM Living Abroad Insurance would suit you better.

When you return to the Netherlands permanently, your healthcare costs will again be covered by mandatory Dutch national health insurance. Please let us know the date on which you plan to return, so that we can terminate your insurance.
