Important information about Turkey


It is highly recommended to review Turkey’s visa information before visiting foreigners who wish to visit, whatever the reason for the visit. Tourist and commercial visa procedures may differ from work and study visa procedures in any country, and Turkish visa policies also vary from country to country according to inter-country agreements.

Some visa applicants may be exempted if the reason for the visit is tourist or commercial or they can obtain an e-visa, but other applicants who want a work visa or study visa must apply through the Turkish Embassy in their country.

Passport duration

Foreigners wishing to enter Turkey must have a visa, visa exemption or residence granted to them with a passport or documents proving that the passport is valid for at least 60 days

Housing in Turkey

Many universities in Turkey offer campus accommodation to all international students who wish to stay on campus or in state-owned housing, and some students prefer to live in private outdoor accommodation.

The price of meals is not generally added in fees, but there are restaurants where students can eat breakfast and other meals at a relatively low nominal cost of “all fees in Turkish lira” regardless of their nationality.

All foreign students must pay the same amount as Turkish students, in addition to the fact that most Turkish dwellings are separated male and female.


All foreign students receiving their education in Turkey can benefit from public health insurance coverage in Turkey. All government hospitals are used at no charge and can also use private hospitals by paying moderate fees. To take advantage of Turkey’s public health insurance system, you can go to your university’s foreign student office for more information.

Students can go to the Social Security Foundation to apply and when you complete your application, you will pay your public health insurance fees, which are determined on an annual basis within one month of the date of your Social Security records.

If you do not apply for a public health insurance system within the “3 months” time period, you cannot benefit from the state’s public health insurance services. But if students have international health insurance they can use it or can benefit from private health insurance in Turkey. Some universities may also offer a special health insurance policy to their foreign students.

Please also bear in mind that Turkey is known for providing high quality health services at low cost for this reason, many patients from neighbour countries as well as from developed Western countries prefer to come to Turkey for cheaper health treatments for surgery, dental and eye examinations.

Students can benefit from their health insurance in Turkey, and in order not to face any problems we recommend students to conduct regular medical examinations
