Process of renewing a residential health insurance policy?

If foreign nationals with a residence permit wish to continue their stay in Turkey, they must follow the rules and regulations set by the government and the Central Insurance Union of Turkey to renew their residence permit. This includes the process of renewing their residential health insurance policy in accordance with the guidelines provided by the authorities.

Foreign individuals can apply for a renewal of their insurance policy with their insurance company from 15 days prior to the expiration date of their current policy up to one month after the expiration date.

It is recommended to renew the health insurance policy for foreign individuals before it expires because if the policy is renewed, waiting periods for the next insurance coverage will be waived.
