Apply for European Health Insurance Card
The European Health Insurance Card or EHIC allows the holder to access health care services when travelling to other EU or EEA countries. Anyone who is living in Ireland or intends to live here for a year can apply for an EHIC.
You can apply online for a card if you already have either a Medical Card or a Drugs Payment Scheme card. Existing EHIC cardholders can renew their card using this link.
