Business travel insurance

When you go on a business trip, you are covered by Kammarkollegiet’s business travel insurance. Extra cover is available through the Diners Club TAC travel insurance policy, provided that you book your trip through the University’s procured travel agency. If you are abroad for an extended period, different rules apply. Find out what applies to you below.

If you are travelling on behalf of Lund University, you are covered by Kammarkollegiet’s business travel insurance. You must take the Swedish State Business Travel Insurance Certificate with you as proof of your insurance coverage.

If you are not covered by the business travel insurance policy, a special travel insurance policy can be taken out instead.

•    Kammarkollegiet’s business travel insurance certificate
•    vaccinations, if required
•    visa, if required
•    insurance certificate for application for a visa (e.g. USA and Russia)
•    for business trips within the EU/EEA, or Switzerland, you must bring the European health insurance card. You order this card yourself from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency.

Insurance certificate

When you go on a business trip, you must take the Swedish State Business Travel Insurance Certificate with you. The certificate is proof that you are covered by the business travel insurance policy. On the back of the certificate, there is information about whom to contact if something goes wrong during the trip.

The certificate is available from your administrator, who orders it from the Human Resources Division. The certificate may be issued for a couple of years at a time, but never longer than the end of your contracted period of employment.

Administrators responsible for ordering travel insurance certificates do so by emailing the number of certificates required and their recipients’ addresses to forsakringskortet [at] pers [dot] lu [dot] se

Spending an extended period abroad

Lund University employees who will be working abroad for an extended period are to have a special international contract (URA).

You can also be stationed abroad if you are to serve abroad for a short period but are accompanied by your family. An international contract must be drawn up in such cases and a special insurance policy taken out, known as URA insurance. URA insurance only applies for employees on an international secondment for which a URA contract has been drawn up. You may also take out supplementary property insurance.

Contact your manager or nearest human resources officer to find out more about the rules that apply when you are abroad for a long period.
