If you don`t do it your health insurance will be interrupted and the UNWE will not be responsible for that. The health insurance can be also interrupted if you have registered at the National Revenue Agency but you haven`t fill in an application for updating / correcting personal information at the Foreign Students and European Appendices to Diplomas Sector of UNWE.
