Ministry of Health on the process of applying for health care for asylum seekers

The Ministry of Health has made the following changes, which will be applied from May 2, 2022, with the aim of improving the procedure for identifying / registering asylum seekers when visiting public hospitals.

  1. Asylum seekers will be accepted at a public hospital during the first year from the date of submission of the International Protection Application by presenting the document “Confirmation of Submission of International Protection Application” issued by the Asylum Service. Instead of a medical card.
  2. It is clarified that the one-year period begins on the date of submission of the application for international protection, as stated in the upper left of the document. In addition, it is clarified that whenever a medical card is available and presented, it will also be accepted.
  3. After the expiration of the first year, asylum seekers will no longer be able to register using “Confirmation of Submission of International Protection Application” and must ensure that a valid medical card is presented. Therefore, you need to make arrangements to secure your medical card in time.
