European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)

As incoming students going abroad during their time at DBS to study for a semester/year and possibly enjoy going on holidays during the study period, you can apply for the European Health Insurance Card as EU nationals. Accidents do happen and you need to make sure that you can receive medical attention if necessary. The EHIC enables you to obtain treatment required and has now replaced the E111 and E128. As an Irish resident you are entitled to get healthcare through the public system if you become ill or injured while on temporary stay in the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland.

Ireland is moving from a short-term emergency response approach to a medium-term approach to managing risk and repairing the damage that COVID-19 has inflicted on society.
A Framework for Restrictive Measures has been developed to help us to go about our daily lives as much as possible, while managing the behaviour of the virus.
