RE: Travel Insurance and Cover Letter Help!!

Toggle
Hi Guys,

I am new member to the community. I got an Offer from a Global MNC with presence in Dusseldorf, Germany.

I have two questions regarding applying Employment Visa in India Delhi.

1- Travel and Health Insurance -> the form says that I need to sign an undertaking that I will be taking health insurance while entering Germany. So wanted to know from the forum whether i need to apply for a temporary Travel health insurance before I enter Germany for first time or this singed undertaking that I will take one when I am in Germany will help my case.

2- Cover letter -> I understand that I need to provide the cover letter to support my application. I am planning to add following pointers to the application :-
- My Work Profile
- My education
- My skills related Certifications
Is there anything specific I need to add to the cover letter.

I hold a MBA degree (IT) and B.Tech Computers.

Thanks guys for help. Much appreciated.

Better take a private health insurance for initial period of stay - example maybe 1 month time frame. This is just to make sure you dont have insurance while travelling. Once you are in Germany, your company will take care of insurance. 

You can also specify the time period you will stay - limited or unlimited and also past experience might help.

Are you going to attach a resume or a CV to your message? In most cases, a cover letter only gives some details motivating a recipient to read the rest of the enclosed materials. However, if for some reasons, you’re not going to attach any additional documents, it’s ok to include all the necessary details about your education and working experience into your cover letter.

Hello LM,

Congrats,

1) Contact your HR or some authorised representative of your employer . They can easily send you a form to register yourself wth the public insurance company (may be TK) . Send it back by filling and duly signed once TK acknowledges that they will issue a letter to your contact in Germany get a scan copy and show it. it will take at max 7-8 days. Depends on your contact how willing he or she is to get you that confirmation. and while flying from India as mani said take inititial travel n health insurance.

2) There is no specific format. However you may keep it small but precise. intro....wrkng wth bla bla...got selected wth bla bla...had a wrk ex of xx yrs....requesting approval for bla bla visa that's all. they will any way take your copies of higher degree and will check originals. agrred wth valdick regarding Cv n other points.

Thanks for the input guys.. Apologies to get back to this post late.

I got my Visa and happily living in Germany now.. got the Blue card too, after 8 weeks in Germany.

For the Cover letter, I wrote a page about, why the job offered to me suits the needs for my professional growth and company I am employed with.

gave some reference to my global travel and certifications of my technology.

So, all things pretty much sorted out in the end!!

Thanks
LM
