Insurance

Home insurance

Incoming guests, staff and interns with no Swedish personal number from the Tax Office are covered by  Insurance for foreign visitors (former GIF) through Kammarkollegiet. Please read more about that here.

The insurance offered by ‘Student IN’, ‘FAS+’ and   Insurance for foreign visitors/'GIF' has a property cover as well as a liability cover. The property and liability cover in this insurance can be equated to a home insurance policy issued by a private insurance company.

Incoming students and others that are covered by ‘Student IN’, ‘FAS+’ and Insurance for foreign visitors/ 'GIF' through Kammarkollegiet that have a housing contract with LU Accommodation do not therefore need to obtain a separate home insurance through a private insurance company in Sweden.

Guest researchers not covered by  Insurance for foreign visitors (former GIF) or have/will receive a Swedish personal number, need to obtain a home insurance policy through a private home insurance company independently.

In general we recommend to have a private home insurance in either case, as the conditions are usually better as well as covers more than the home insurances which are included in the above.
