Health insurance for Erasmus, Exchange, and Special Students

To apply for a Student Residence Permit, the Republic of Turkey requires that international students prove that they have health insurance for the duration of their stay in Turkey.

  • Please note:  This is a government requirement. Boğaziçi University, as a public university, has no separate requirement for health insurance from international students.

The Office of International Relations can help you with the preparation of this and other documents for the application.

Insurance Types

  2. Private insurance, puchased in Turkey (short-term travel insurance)

    Documents needed for the application for the Student Residence Permit:

    1. Original copy of policy agreement
    2. Declaration of Insurance, a one-page document available from the Office of International Relations
