Document I have applied for an EHICE, will my spouse / partner be included within the same application?

If your spouse / partner is entitled to an S1/A1 form in their own name, they cannot be included on your EHICE application; they must contact Overseas Healthcare Services (OHS) at the NHSBSA to apply for an EHIC for themselves.
If your spouse / partner does not meet the criteria to apply for their own S1 / A1 form, you must declare their details when you apply for your S1 / A1 and you will need to include your spouse / partner's details as a dependant when contacting the OHS.

You can contact the OHS on:
  • 0191 218 1999 (option 5) if you are calling from the UK
  • 0044 191 218 1999 (option 5) calling from outside of the UK
