If you live and work in Ibiza, whether it is for a short season or if you are planning to stay long term, you should get your health card as soon as possible. It will give you access to free health care in the health centers of the Balearic Islands. You never know when you may need it. 

1Where can I get my health card in Ibiza? 

You can get it at any of the health centers in Ibiza, although you must obtain it in the one that is closest to where you live.


Hours to obtain the health card (at Ibiza health centers):

From Monday to Friday from 9.00 to 13.30 and from 16.00 to 20.00.

2What requirements do I need to obtain the health card? You should be registered in the pertaining Municipality. Documents needed:

– DNI / NIE / Passport and residence authorization.

– Recent photo in color of 26 x 32 mm (with the same features as the one on the DNI)

– If you hold a health card from another autonomous community, you should also present it.

– Social Security affiliation number.

– Minors: document P1 (you can obtain it at the Social Security Office located at Avinguda d’Espanya, 57, bajos) and the family book (libro de familia).

– If you need to get the health card for someone else: you need to present an authorization with the name, surname and DNI/NIE number. It should be signed by the requesting person and the authorized person. Health centers have a generic model of authorization, but they admit other formats.

– The validity of the new health card is for years. Once it has expired you should ask for a renovation.

– Approximate price: free of charge.

  1. Estimada Alba, gracias por toda la información.
    Me mudo a ibiza a trabajar como médico y estoy un poco asustada con el tema vivienda y transporte.
    Tienes algún “extra tip” sobre el tema?
    Gracias!

    • ¡Hola, Nora! Gracias por tu comemtario. Acerca del tema del transporte no debes tener miedo. Si dispones de vehículo propio en la isla llegarás a cualquier parte en menos de 20 minutos. Si no es así, en Ibiza cada vez se está mejorando más el transporte por autobús, y son muchas las líneas que recorren la isla. Puedes echar un vistazo aquí: https://ibizabus.com/ibiza/lineas/ Con respecto a la vivienda, mi consejo principal es que estés aquí para buscarla, ya que a través de internet puedes ser víctima de timos. No adelantes dinero a nadie sin haber visto antes la vivienda. Otro consejo, si es que tienes cierta flexibilidad de fechas para mudarte, es que empieces tu búsqueda a partir de octubre. En esa época suelen aparecer más ofertas de alojamiento… Te deseo mucha suerte para esta nueva aventura.:) ¡Un saludo!
