    Hi Kylene,
    I will be coming to Aalborg on exchange and I am hoping you can help me answer a question. It is my understanding that I will receive a health card when I get my permanent residency after arriving. I am wondering if I still need to purchase travel insurance or if I will be covered by the card.
    Thanks!

      Hi Hana –

      Once you have a yellow health card, you will be covered by the Danish health system. You will not need travel insurance then. (I have heard that you can even get a letter from the municipality in the interim should you need to see a doctor and that can cover you in the interim; I’m not sure about that, however.) Please note that it can take time to get the card, depending on your immigrant status. Are you an EU citizen? If so, you just need a ‘blue card’ from your home country to cover urgent care needs in the interim, I think…Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Sarah
