INSURANCE for Residence Permit extension

Post by Andrei_T » Tue May 22, 2018 12:06 pm

Hello!

I’m a Master’s degree student in Lappeenranta University of Technology.
I will stay in Finland for 1 more year and now I’m trying to submit my residence permit extension on EnterFinland e-service.

I have a question about insurance:

In the rules they say that "If your studies take less than two years (less than four semesters): your insurance must cover medical expenses up to EUR 100,000. If your studies take at least two years (four semesters or more): your insurance must cover medical expenses up to EUR 30,000".

Last year I bought an insurance with EUR 100 000 coverage for just 1 year for a mistake (my study is lasting 2 years). Can I now buy an insurance with EUR 30 000 coverage instead of EUR 100 000? Is it ok for my application? My study in Finland last 2 years but I’ve already finished the first year.
