Important Notice: The explanations are for informational purposes only and you can access current and detailed information at e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr.


Dear Foreign Health Insurance Customers, we continue to share the legal information we have learned about the insurance and residence processes in order to make the lives of our foreign guests living in Turkey easier.

In this week's blog post, we will inform you about "What is Foreign Health Insurance?" and "Where to Buy?".

Foreign Health Insurance is an insurance that foreign nationals who are not Turkish citizens and want to obtain a residence permit in Turkey have to have.

According to the law that came into force on 10 June 2016 foreign health insurance is a compulsory type of insurance for nationals who want to apply for residence in Turkey. In other words, Foreign Health Insurance is also called Residence Permit Health Insurance.

Foreign health insurance is a type of insurance that is compulsory for foreign nationals who will reside in Turkey for a minimum of 1 year or longer. In other words, it is the health insurance that foreigners who do not have Turkish citizenship purchase to obtain a residence permit.

Foreign Nationals need Health Insurance information and have to add their insurance information when registering Residence Appointment on the Official Website of the Republic of Turkey www.e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr for Residence Application.

So, Where to Get Foreign Health Insurance? We will now address this issue.

• Never buy your residence insurance from an unauthorized insurance agency. Please make sure to ask this information before purchasing the insurance. It is forbidden for an organization that is not an Insurance Agency to act as an intermediary in the sale of Insurance. You may experience difficulties in the coming days with the validity of the foreign health insurance you have purchased. In 2021, 125,000 fake residence insurances were sold and these people had to buy their second foreign health insurance. The easiest way to understand this is to learn the agency title and check the agency lists on the website of the relevant insurance company's general directorate. In addition, according to the laws, the Company's Trade Name, Mersis No, Plate Registration No, Trade Registry No should be shared on the websites. If this information is not available, we recommend to be cautious.

• According to the laws of the Republic of Turkey, only authorized agents, brokers, insurance companies can sell insurance. Apart from this, consultancy companies and individuals are strictly prohibited from selling insurance.

• Unauthorized insurance sellers will most likely cause you serious problems in the future, you can be sure of that. You may not be able to contact them in the process of getting service after purchasing the insurance and during cancellation/refund processes.

• If you want to buy your Health Insurance for Residence from a digital point, you should definitely check if the company is authorized, then see Google Comments. The point you need to pay attention to, are the reviews of real individuals on the Google business account, not fake reviews on the website. If there is no such Google Business Account, we recommend that you stay away from this website.

• One of the most important points you should pay attention to is the price offered to you. Foreign health insurance prices for residence of all insurance companies in Turkey start from 1090 TL for a minimum of 1 year. Places that give offers significantly below this price are generally unauthorized and non-agency consultancy firms. The easiest way to understand this is to take the price given to you and call the relevant insurance company to find out.

• We strongly recommend that you do not take risks such as deportation, rejection of your residence application, by trying to get insurance a little cheaper.

• If you are going to buy insurance online, definitely check whether the relevant website is registered to the ETBIS system. You can think of https://www.eticaret.gov.tr/ as the electronic registration system of the government's online services. We strongly recommend that you stay away from unregistered websites.

• Unfortunately, one of the methods of purchasing your Residence Insurance is via WhatsApp. In this method, foreigners send their passports or residence cards to intermediaries, and unauthorized persons try to create insurance manually. However, this method is a process contrary to KVKK, and beyond that, it may create big problems for you in the future such as using your information to open companies on your behalf, creating credit cards, withdrawing loans, etc. We definitely do not recommend using this method.

• Purchase your Residence Permit Insurance from the point you are absolutely sure of and by learning about the insurance company's standard prices. This is very easy to understand and confirm.

• One thing to consider when purchasing your residence insurance is to choose the right policy start date. This is why the place you will be purchasing your insurance from should have an experience in this field and be able to offer you the right information. Otherwise, your insurance will have to be canceled and rearranged, and your residence processes may be interrupted.
