I am an Australian moving to France on a scientific research visa for 2 years. My girlfriend (also Australian) is coming with me. She has a Dutch passport.
We are trying to work out what to do about health insurance for her. From reading the other answers on this website, I have surmised the following:
- Since she is not covered by another EU country she will be not be covered in France.
- If she gets a job working more than 60 hours per month she will be covered.
There is no guarantee she will be able to find a job straight away. Should she buy health insurance? Or is it possible to 3 months and apply for "couverture maladie universelle" or is that not applicable? Is there some way she could be covered by being my partner?
