As a result of completed proceedings under the open tender procedure, the following insurance company has been selected:

Wiener TU S.A. Vienna Insurance Group
with its registered office at 162 Wołoska St., 02-675 Warsaw

Insurance coverage is granted to staff members, PhD candidates and students once you have been accepted for the travel based on your Travel Request Form submitted to the IRO. Your insurance as the travelling person covers only the period of time between the dates of departure from Poland and return to Poland, as specified in your Travel Request Form, approved of by the appropriate JU Vice-Rector. The insurance is valid in the destination country, as specified in your Travel Request Form, and in transit countries only.

If your stay abroad is extended for business reasons, it is possible to extend the insurance coverage period in Wiener TU S.A., but only if you submit a letter with the information about extending your stay for business reasons. Your letter must include your immediate supervisor’s consent and it should be submitted to the JU IRO at least 10 days in advance, so that there is enough time to complete procedures related to the insurance coverage period extension.

The scope of insurance contract concluded with Wiener TU S.A. covers the medical expenses, accident insurance and travel luggage insurance as well as the medical expenses related to chronic diseases.

As a travelling person please remember that the equipment owned by the University is not insured abroad; thus, it is necessary to purchase additional insurance policy, especially in case of electronic devices. Such additional insurance policies will be funded by individual units. Announcement No. 14 of the JU Chancellor of July 27, 2022.
