Document Does my child need their own EHIC?

Yes, everyone requires their own EHIC regardless of their age. Children under 16 must be added as dependents to a parents or guardians record. Children aged 16 - 19 may also be added as dependents to their parents or guardians record providing they are still in full time education.

In addition, any person aged 16 and above may also apply for their own EHIC independently.
