Requirements for living in the United Kingdom

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is the personal and non-transferable document that certifies the right to receive the health benefits that are necessary, from a medical point of view, during a temporary stay in the territory of the European Economic Area, United Kingdom or Switzerland, taking into account the nature of the benefits and the duration of the planned stay, in accordance with the legislation of the country of stay, regardless of whether the purpose of the stay is tourism, a professional activity or studies.

The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is not valid when the purpose of the trip is to receive medical treatment, in which case it is necessary that the National Institute of Social Security (INSS) or the Social Marine Institute (ISM) issue the corresponding form, after a favorable report from the Health Service.  Nor is the document valid if you move your residence to the territory of another Member State.

In some cases, you will have to pay a fixed amount or a percentage of the costs of health care, on an equal footing with the insured persons of the State to which you are moving. These amounts are non-refundable.

The card must be expired for renewal. That is why you must schedule an appointment at the Police Office before the expiration date in order to renew it the day after the expiration date.

The realization of this extraordinary exchange requires the verification of equivalence and authenticity of the driving licenses you have by the United Kingdom. The exchange requires the confirmation of the validity of your driving license by the UK authorities.
