Will aN EHIC card suffice for the medical need for this application or do I need a private policy to cover 12 month period. I have read conflicting reports any advice will be welcome. Thanks.
For the little it's worth:
We were informed that an EHIC card was insufficient, so we took out cheap insurance. When it came to the application the police didn't even ask for any proof of health cover at all. They did look at our bank book though.
As is often the case it might well depend on "what they think" are the rules and regs.
