Health and Insurance

Due to a new regulation, all exchange students need to have a valid health insurance, to be able to apply for the residence permit.

You can use your own insurance documents if you are an Exchange student, and if the document meets the minimum requirements.

To make the insurance in Turkey: You need to make your own health insurance. The insurance costs approximately 150 TL for exchange students.

If Turkey and your country has a social security agreement: You need to visit your social security office (not your private insurance company!!) in your country before you arrive. They will give you a document called "formular". You will get the Turkish Social security Office's approval to this document. You can use this approved formular as your insurance, in your residence permit application.
