Found 31st May 2010
I'm going Paris in one months time and I'm required to have a EHIC card I'm not sure where to start off? I have my national insurance number. I was told I need to be over 16 otherwise my dad has to apply on behalf of the family?
Any help would be great

So which option do I choose? I'm thinking the bottom one but above someone said about my parent applying in my name? How does that work?

Also how long does it take to get one?

It's free if you go direct to the official website
direct.gov.uk/en/…245

EDIT that takes you to the NHS page ehic.org.uk/Int….do where you can apply online free of charge

just done our renewal via there & cards came quite quickly as well

There's only a charge if you go through anyone other than the official site, as they are scamming you for "admin fees", when it's free to get directly.
