Insurance cover for coronavirus / COVID-19 infections

If you travel or stay abroad for professional reasons, e.g. due to your studies, you will be covered by your insurance even if the Federal Foreign Office issues a travel warning. You will therefore also be reimbursed for treatment costs incurred due to sickness caused by COVID-19.

Holiday travel is only insured under certain conditions

If the Federal Foreign Office issues a travel warning, non-essential travels (e.g. holidays) are only insured under certain conditions or not at all. For further information please read the overview below.

COVID-19 rapid test

Free testing options


Performing COVID-19 tests helps identify infected individuals and break transmission chains. Every person in Germany is entitled to at least one free rapid test per week, even without symptoms. You can find the most important information about free testing options, for example when and where you can take a test, how to deal with the result, which types of tests there are and how they differ, under Coronavirus test types.
