Health insurance


In Turkey, individual health insurance is obligatory, and without it the student cannot apply for a residence permit. Students should contact their local health insurance company before leaving their country because a bilateral agreement can exist between the two countries. If the student has international health insurance, he will only have to pay the supplementary fee.

If there is no bilateral agreement, students must sign up with a mutuality or get private health insurance. The fee for the GHI is approximately 350 - 700 Turkish Liras (TL) per year.
