ISS Group Health Insurance

The ISS Group Health Insurance Policy comes automatically with your admission to the ISS.

  • In order to be covered by the ISS' Group Health Insurance, you must submit a completed Health Certificate to the ISS.
  • Failure to submit the Health Certificate in due time would leave the student without coverage under the ISS Group Health Insurance Policy, and result in expulsion from the programme.

About the Health Certificate:

  • Must be completed by a qualified medical professional.
  • Should certify your current state of health with special reference to your plan to travel abroad and participation in the ISS.
  • Cannot be dated earlier than January 1, 2018.
  • Must be sent to us no later than June 1, 2018. 

How to send in the Health Certificate

Do not send it by email. All info about your health must be sent by regular mail due to privacy laws in Norway.

Who needs ISS Group Health Insurance?

  • Students who need a visa must be covered by the ISS Group Health Insurance Policy.
  • Other students can either choose to be covered by it, or they can forfeit this policy for their own health insurance policy by sending in a forfeit form. See how to forfeit the ISS Group Health Insurance Policy.
  • Forfeiting the ISS policy does not qualify the student for a reduction in the basic fee.
