Be properly insured for your foreign internship
For a foreign internship a lot will need to be organised. You will need to plan your journey, organise somewhere to stay and arrange things with your internship company. And of course you want to be properly insured abroad while you are doing your internship. OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is perfect for this.
Insurance for interns
If you are going abroad for an internship, the the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for you. The advantages:
- Good insurance for healthcare costs; you can add dental costs to your insurance
- With the package insurance you also insure household contents, liability, travel, legal assistance and accidents
- SOS insurance is included as standard
- You have flexible duration from 1 day to 5 years
- You also have insurance cover even if you come back to the Netherlands in between
Internship abroad and healthcare costs
If you are a Dutch national going abroad for an internship, you will not be eligible for the Dutch national health insurance for healthcare costs in most cases. You can find more information on the Zorginstituut Nederland website.
With the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance you can insure yourself properly for healthcare costs during your internship abroad.
If you are still covered by the Dutch national health insurance, bear in mind that healthcare in some countries is much more expensive than the Netherlands; the Dutch national health insurance will never refund more than you would receive in the Netherlands. The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance could then be a useful supplement.
You may experience setbacks abroad during your foreign internship, just as you might in the Netherlands. What happens if you are liable for damages incurred by a third party, your computer is stolen or if you need to go home due to illness or the death of a close family member?
The package insurance of the OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for those kinds of situations and covers household contents, liability, travel, legal assistance and accidents. The package insurance can be taken out separately or to supplement the health Insurance.
The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance includes SOS insurance as standard. It includes covering the costs of repatriation to the Netherlands or evacuation if treatment is not possible locally and cannot be postponed.
For interns up to age 29
The OOM Studying Abroad Insurance is for young people up to age 29 wanting to do an internship abroad. If you don’t fall into this age category, go to OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance.
