Health care and temporary residence
Rules governing health care provision for temporary residents in Greenland. For more information please read this file
Temporary residence means a stay of six months or less, either for study or vacation.
Should your stay or part thereof be job- related, then the rules do not apply.
The Health Authorities advise that you take a comprehensive health travel insurance policy which covers all aspects of ill health, including sudden onset of disease emergencies, hospital admission, therapy, medication, dental care and home transportation. Please ensure that your insurance policy also covers ambulance transportation from sparsely populated or desolate areas in Greenland.
