Insurance for foreign visitors, FUB

FUB applies to foreign visitors, incl. fellows, who have a connection to KI's activities and stay here for less than a year (ie lacking a Swedish social security number). The insurance is only valid for 364 days.

FUB is taken out as a group insurance that applies around the clock in Sweden and during travel that takes place directly between the home country and Sweden. The insurance does not apply if the insured is in his home country. The insurance also applies in the Schengen area if the insured has a Schengen visa.

The insurance covers emergency medical and dental care and home transport to the home country if necessary. The insurance does not cover regular checks or medications for illnesses that have occurred before the trip.

The insurance contains invalidity and death capital. In the event of an accidental injury leading to medical disability, an invalidity capital is paid in relation to the medical degree of disability. If the accidental injury leads to death within three years, a basic amount is paid to the estate.

The insurance also includes a liability cover if someone claims the visitor for damages for something the visitor did during the visit. It also contains a legal protection if the visitor claims someone for damages.

In addition, the insurance includes a property protection if the visitor gets rid of his private property during the visit. In the event of damage to property, the deductible is always 1500 SEK.
