E111 Renewal


The European Health Insurance Card service, which is the replacement for the old E111 form, will not change in any way, shape or form following the 2016 EU referendum result. The EHIC service remains unchanged (and is still provided by the NHSBSA) so you will still be covered under the EHIC scheme. This goes for the online application service and the way in which you can use your European Health Insurance Card as well.

The paper-based E111 form went out of commission in January 2006 and has since been replaced by the new European Health Insurance Card. The European Health Insurance Card provides exactly the same cover as the previous E111. Anyone who owns an EHIC Card can use state-provided healthcare facilities throughout any European Economic Area country and Switzerland. Any resident of the United Kingdom, travelling to any of these countries, are advised to carry a valid EHIC Card regardless of whether they owned the old E111 form or not. It is vital to ensure the card is valid and up to date before travelling. Whether you need to replace an old E111 or apply for a new European Health Insurance Card, you can apply by completing the application form below this disclaimer. All EHIC Cards are valid for up to five years.

Alternatively, if you would like to make an application using our website, whether it is to replace your old E111 or not, you can do so by completing the application form below this disclaimer. Please be aware that you are required to pay a fee for our service. Our service package includes a full application reviewal where your application is checked thoroughly for errors and omissions.

Our organisation’s application service includes verifying your form and forwarding it to the relevant authorities to make your EHIC application process an error free and fast experience which inevitably prevents any hold ups and delays.
