Good health is the key to a beautiful, long, and active life. Therefore, all non-nationals who move to Turkey are interested in health insurance.
There are several types of insurance:
In the first year of residence, only private insurance is available for purchase. When applying for a residence permit, every foreigner between the ages of 18 and 65 must apply for private insurance.
The medical record must also be issued for the same duration as the resident's permit.
Turkish Migration Service manages this process. Minors, as well as seniors over 65 years of age, are not required to have insurance. Parents may decide for their children.
Insurance costs may range from 150 to 1000 TL a year. Before filling out the paperwork, note that health insurance companies work with different doctors and clinics.
