Vaccinations against rabies and tetanus
The OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance is a medical insurance for if you stay abroad for a longer period of time (up to a maximum of 2 years).
What does the insurance reimburse?
Whether you get reimbursement for rabies and tetanus vaccinations depends on the cover you have chosen:
- Light cover: no reimbursement
- Regular and Comfort cover: all costs will be reimbursed
We will reimburse the costs if:
- you have been bitten, scratched or licked by an animal that may be infected with rabies
- you risk tetanus infection following a wound and preventative vaccinations do not offer sufficient protection
Are there costs for you?
With the OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance you can opt for no excess or an excess of €250, €500 or €1,000. If you have opted for an excess and you incur costs which are covered by the insurance, you then pay the first part of these costs yourself.
