Insurance

Home insurance

Incoming guests, staff and interns without a Swedish personal number from the Tax Office are covered by  Insurance for foreign visitors (former GIF) through Kammarkollegiet. Please read more on the staff pages on Lund University's staff pages:

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.
