According with the latest regulations in Turkey, international students have to obtain a 1 year-valid health insurance for each year they are planning to stay in our country.
You can also obtain health insurance from government in the first 3 months after your first arrival in Turkey with your TC ID number, by applying directly to any office of SGK (Social Insurance Department) in your neighborhood. If the SGK option doesn’t work for you, please consider private health insurance options.
You may visit our office for more information about health insurance during the office hours.
