Be properly insured abroad
Your sabbatical abroad is the culmination of years of hard work; you will finally have time for yourself and the things which are really important in life. Proper insurance is indispensable for a care-free sabbatical. This is what OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance is for.

The OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance is a complete insurance for your sabbatical abroad. The advantages:
- Choice of cover for healthcare costs, dentist, SOS, travel, cancellation, household contents, liability, legal assistance and accidents
- For healthcare costs you can choose between Light, Regular or Comfort cover
- SOS insurance is included as standard in the health insurance
- You will have worldwide insurance including a stay in the Netherlands between times
- Attractive discount if you have to retain your mandatory Dutch national health Insurance
A sabbatical abroad and the Dutch national health insurance
If you are going abroad for a sabbatical, your personal situation will determine whether or not you will have to retain your Dutch national health insurance.
If you are not covered by the Dutch national health insurance when you are on a sabbatical abroad, the OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance will give you proper healthcare costs cover. The insurance can also be a supplement if you are going to a country where medical care is expensive; you will never receive higher reimbursement than what you would get from the Dutch national health Insurance.
The health insurance includes SOS insurance. It includes covering the costs of repatriation to the Netherlands or evacuation if treatment is not possible locally and cannot be postponed. This is particularly important if you will be staying in countries where medical care is poor during your sabbatical. SOS insurance can also be taken out separately.
Miscellaneous insurance for your sabbatical
Of course you will be going abroad to enjoy a care-free sabbatical, but you may experience setbacks, just as you might in the Netherlands. What happens if you are liable for damages incurred by a third party, you lose your luggage or you get involved in a legal dispute? And what if a close family member is seriously ill or dies and you want to return home as soon as possible?
With OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance you decide which situations you want to insure yourself for during your sabbatical. You may take out insurance for travel, continual cancellation, household contents, liability, legal assistance and accidents.
Are you going on a sabbatical for more than 2 years?
The OOM Temporary Residence Abroad Insurance has a flexible duration from 1 day to a maximum of 2 years (1 year for the continual travel insurance). You can terminate the insurance at any time.
If you already know you will be staying abroad for more than 2 years, OOM Living Abroad Insurance would suit you better. This insurance also enables you to choose the extensive DeLuxe cover for healthcare costs.
