Health insurance

Vysoka skola manazmentu in Trencin does not provide insurance coverage for foreign incoming exchange students or staff members. We recommend to Mobility participants to get their own health insurance valid for their entire stay in Slovakia before their arrival to Slovakia.

Except European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) we also recommend to have a private traveler’s insurance covering health care costs, repatriation and medical evacuation, personal property, and third-party liability for the duration of their exchange period at VŠM in Slovakia.


Since the Slovak Republic is a full member of the European Union, international students coming from EU countries do not need visa. Students from non-EU countries will need a visa for arranging a stay and entry to Slovak Republic. Information about visa policy in Slovak republic can be obtained from the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic:
