  1. Travel insurance is required by law for entry into Turkey. While this law isn't strictly enforced, it's still a good idea to buy a policy to protect you from financial loss and cover you if you require medical treatment. What is Travel Insurance? Travel insurance is a temporary insurance policy that protects you from financial loss, which might occur in a variety of potentially unfortunate or disastrous events. These events include medical emergencies, hospitalization, theft or loss of property, and even the cancellation of your trip. A travel insurance policy typically becomes active
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. I have two question about apply for Visa. 1 year 1. Is it right that If I get a Visa, I had to stay in Turkey at least 8 month during that year? 2. I am over 65 years, and some people say I dont need insurance. What happen if I had to go to a doctor, and dont have insurance? I will be very happy to get answer as soon as possible, though I will apply for Visa next week.
  8. 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
  9. 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. I am trying to figure out to get a confirmation that my insurance is enough but insurance company doesn't want to give me that confirmation. I am insured with AXA assistance which has branch in Turkey as well. My insurance is valid in Turkey and cover whole my stay in Turkey. It cover as well all expenses without limitation (Except terrorists attack and dental care what is limit) . According to this I suppose that my p

  13. 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
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. Hi guys, we are thinking of spending our summer school holidays driving from Turkey and around Europe. Can I take my Turkish car out of Turkey? Do I need additional insurance or is my Turkish insurance enough. Do I need to register the car in Europe? Is it a hassle? Advice please. Jane Janeyinmersin.com
  17. Hi, I look forward to relocating to Turkey with my wife and parents. I need ideas about what would be the most suitable place for my family. Im looking at 4-bed villas. Although I've read about health insurance and residency, still wanted to clarify somethings.1) What would be the ideal place to live. My preference is not a big city, but not a small town either. Something with population between 100k to 500k. With things to do: Cinemas, bowling alleys, restaurants, concerts etc. I'm looking at suburbs and away from crowd and noise. Would also like to know which option would be most economic
  18. Hi all, does anyone know what the story is, if say, you get insured with SGK, then afterwards once you have got your residency, you cancel SGK and go with another provider, does this affect residency in any way?
  19. Hi, Was hoping to get some SGK related answers by foreigners who are already living in Turkey. I'm considering to relocate within the next 6 months and have some questions 1) Based on updated and current SGK rules, is it mandatory for foreigners to opt in for SGK? 2) Can foreigners opt-in only after 1 year of RP? 3) SGK costs roughly $100 per month per couple? 4) SKG covers most medical care and surgeries except for cosmetic surgeries and cosmetic dental care? 5) My father has heart diseases and has gone through angioplasty twice. He also has diabetes and spends a
  20. I am working and I know my employer makes payments for health, but its only for the basic state health? is that SGK? Does anyone know how much the 'top-up' is to turn it into private health? Also Is it worth paying the top-up (premium) what more does it entitle you to?

Can I do this in SGK building in Konak? which department is responsible for that? Do they speak English? I found is so difficult to do the paperwork here!
  23. For newcomers to Turkey I thought the following article might be of interest to you. State health insurance application made simple After many expats were put off joining the SGK (Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu) – Turkey’s state health insurance – last year because of teething problems and a complicated application process, now things have improved and a much more streamlined sign-up system is in place. A brave couple who were keen to get to the bottom of the situation armed themselves with a Turkish friend as a translator and headed to the newly opened SGK office in Didim. And here’s w
  24. Does anyone know where to go to get insurance for valuable jewellery you wear outside the home ie engagement and wedding rings? At home in the UK it was covered on the home contents insurance. Here there is an upper limit of 3500 TL which does not cover my engagement ring. I would be grateful if anyone can advise. We have our home contents with Allianz
