  1. I am thinking to have a good health insurance, which we as a family can use, when we are sick. I am 60 years old and my husband is 66 years and both have a short term residence. I read about SGK insurance, but I am not sure if it is a good health insurance or maybe there is a better one with an reasonable price and coverage? Any advice or experience will be appreciated.
  2. Please I need some help regarding my husband health insurance, on the 2 July he will be 65 years old, and I read that people over 65 years old, does not need a health insurance for RP. Does he need an insurance if he apply for RP during May 2019? Or he should wait till the 2 July, then he apply for RP? If he does not need health insurance for RP, what he will write in insurance-fields on RP-application? Another issue which I need help too, I read that Danish Nationality are exempted from RP fee, is that true? I am Swedish. Am I also exempted from RP fee too?
  3. We've had a few questions in our residence permit health insurance forum about what exactly is covered by a Turkish private health insurance policy. So I took this information directly from my own health insurance policy, from Groupama, and I present it here to give you an idea of what is covered. The first year is limited in coverage, to screen out those who might come in with pre-existing conditions requiring immediate care. But after the first year, you will get full coverage. Make sure you get one of your insurance company's cards with your policy number. With that, the hospital or other h
  4. My country has a bilateral agreement which says that I am covered for my medical needs in Turkey. Will that suffice for the residence permit requirement? Yes. If your country has a bilateral agreement with Turkey which allows you to get health care services while in Turkey, you don't need to buy another health insurance policy. You can present documentation of your health insurance coverage as proof of insurance. This involves obtaining document(s) from your home country, then taking them to the Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu (SGK). The SGK will then give you a document which proves that you are e
  5. I've written several guides about the health insurance requirement for residence permits. They're based on the Turkish laws and official documentation, as well as the literature of the health insurance companies which provide insurance for expats in Turkey. I also work with a representative of Ankara Sigorta (Ankara Insurance), who has been very helpful in clearing up any ambiguities in the law. You can find my articles here: Health Insurance for Your Residence Permit Articles If you have a question which isn't covered in these articles, or in the forums, I will personally go to the
  6. Other than living in Turkey for over a year with a residence permit, what are the requirements for SGK insurance? Do I need to have a job with a work permit? I think that's what I was told at the local SGK office a year ago.
  7. I met today with Erdoğan Akyüz, a representative of Ankara Sigorta (insurance). I asked him about how we could obtain health insurance coverage for two years, if we are applying for a two-year short-term residence permit. He said Ankara Sigorta now offers a two-year health insurance coverage package. This involves two separate one-year health insurance policies--the first for year one, the second for year two. The day after the first policy expires, the second one becomes active, providing continuous coverage for two years. Both insurance policies would be bought at the same time. We

  16. I am moving from California/US to the Izmir area in July of this year. I have visited 3 times in the last 17 months and I am ready to make the leap. I have some questions. First one is about health insurance that is necessary for short term residence. I have been told that Allianz is a good insurance and that I can get it at the bank Yapı Kredi. From what I was seeing on Allianz website mine would be $3,000 US dollars a year. But online blogs it always seem like they mention much lower numbers when talking about the cost of insurance. I read that after a year I can get the SGK Insura
  17. I applied for a residence permit and I supposed my insurance is sufficient, but period of my stay is already running and I am waiting to my appointment to residence permit.

  18. Collision Damage Insurance Collision Damage Insurance (CDI), also called Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), is practically always included with the cost of a rental car in Turkey. It covers damages to the rental car, with a deductible that you will have to pay before the insurance pays. If you pay a higher premium, you can eliminate the deductible and have the insurance cover all fees involved. CDW does not cover damage to headlights, tires, or the windshield. Headlights, Tires, and Windscreen You can also buy additional insurance to cover the headlights, tires and windscreen (windshi

  22. I am looking to apply for a residence permit soon. And it seems like health insurance is mandatory. Can someone give me an approximate figure for minimum health insurance cover? I am young, healthy, no previous conditions etc... I am grateful to have my health really, but I do not actually need this so I want to spend the absolute minimum I can on this, if you understand! I have seen another member get private insurance for $250 dollars per year. I think I read another young woman got insurance for 800TL for the year. Then again, I think I saw
  23. I am currently insured in the US through Providence Medical Group. Can anyone tell me how to figure out if this insurance counts for the residence permit or not? Or where in my policy I would find that information?
  24. Is there a certain time period for how long your health insurance should be valid for when you make an RP renewal i.e. will it need to cover the entire forthcoming year of the RP? I ask because I currently have private health insurance that runs out about four months after my RP renewal date and I'm wondering if they will accept this at my renewal appointment or not. I will renew my private insurance but I can't do that yet until one month before it finishes. I've called the local relevant offices but as usual they don't know.
