Comprehensive Sickness Insurance to Be Required For EEA Student Family Members

Jun 4, 2015

Currently, EEA students are required to hold Comprehensive Sickness Insurance (CSI) for themselves, but these Regulations do not include family members who are in the UK residing with them.

As of 6th April 2015, amendments were made to EEA Regulations and once implemented, students who have family members residing with them in the UK, will be required to also obtain CSI for each family member.

Due to operational reasons, students are not currently required to obtain CSI for their family members, however, this Regulation will be implemented as of 22nd June 2015.

This means that any application received on or after 22nd June 2015, will require CSI for any family members of students residing in the UK with them. If CSI cannot be evidenced, applications will be refused under Regulation 4.
