Document Can I order an EHIC for my 16 - 19 year old child?

Yes, as long as your child is in full time education (A-level or below). Students who have just completed their course at school or college and are going straight to university after the summer break, would be classed as being in full time education. An apprenticeship is not considered as full time education.

You must provide your details first and also verify your child’s information; you must make a brand new application if you do not already have an EHIC.

When applying on your child’s behalf please provide their National Insurance (NI) or NHS number where possible.
