Internship

Hi,

My son has just been offered a 6 month internship in malta and I was wondering about his health care there. Obviously his insurance through the company only covers him while he's at work. Would he need a travel insurance to cover his time there or will he need to register for health care as his EHIC won't cover him for the full six months. Any advise would be gratefully received.

Thank you

Hi :-)

EHIC is only for tourists, so anyone living in Malta shouldn't use it. Is your son a UK citizen, if so there is a reciprocal agreement between Malta and UK for basic health cover. Just need to apply for it.
