I have an appointment at German Embassy for German National Visa this Monday. The purpose is a new employment (Got a job in Germany). I was going through the checklist and found out about the travel health insurance -
Certificate about compulsory health insurance (Gesetzliche Krankenversicherung) from German employer valid from date of employment. Please note: If not already included in the compulsory health insurance a separate travel health insurance has to be presented for the time frame from arrival in Germany until beginning of employment (see below)
Furthermore, it mentions -
In case of visa approval, you will be requested to present a travel health insurance (Kindly refer to www.india.diplo.de/visa to find out about the travel health insurances accepted).
So, I am assuming that the travel health insurance is not required at the time of application, but only after approval. Is that correct?
I already have a confirmation from my new employer which mentions the following text -
This letter is to confirm that we will ensure that our prospective employee , born on will obtain health insurance in Germany and is taking care of registering the employee for the health insurance.
I confirmed with the HR and she says I still have to buy a health insurance. She doesn't know whether it's before or after appointment/approval.
So should I go at the embassy with a confirmed travel health insurance or not?
