Insurance information for Turkey

If you are going to study and live in Turkey, you want to be fully prepared before starting your adventure. Among other things, you want to make sure your insurance covers everything you need, without paying too much.

People who come to Turkey as international students are required to have health insurance during their official residence and will need proof of insurance to obtain a student visa.

You can buy a private health insurance; please note that some of the insurance offered in the market may provide an insufficient insured amount.

Another option is General Health Insurance (GSS). This type of insurance, governed by the Social Security Institution of the Republic of Turkey, will give you the right to benefit from treatment in all state hospitals free of charge. In this way, you can get your prescription medications, please note that you will have to pay a contribution. The most important point to note with GSS is that you must make your application within three months following your university registration and you will have to renew your insurance every year.

Is this enough?

It is important to understand that the EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) is not always enough, Please note that EHIC is according to EU recommendations not an alternative for Travel Insurance, and that the local offered health insurance will probably not cover:

  • (Additional) medical costs
  • Repatriation
  • Liability
  • Home contents and baggage
  • Accidents
  • Legal aid
  • Worldwide cover

You will need an insurance policy also covering, but also arranging for you, for example:

  • You returning home if a close relative is seriously ill or dies;
  • Up to two close relatives visiting you in if you fall seriously ill;
  • Your medical repatriation to your home country for hospitalization or rehabilitation treatment;
  • or in the worst possible situation, returning a body home for burial.
