Health insurance in North Cyprus for tourists.

Updated: 3 months ago

Since the TRNC is an unrecognized state, it isn't possible to buy a travel health insurance policy from every insurance company before traveling here. The fact is that due to the status of the country, electronic payments for medical services are problematic. And you need to choose insurance companies that have special contracts with clinics in Northern Cyprus. There aren't very many such companies. List of suitable insurance companies:

Tinkoff Insurance”. Works through “Europ Assistance” assistants. The agreement was concluded with several clinics in Northern Cyprus. When an insured event occurs, you need to contact assistance. They will select a clinic and specialist for you. There is no need to pay anything. There is a representative of “Europ Assistance” in Northern Cyprus who will resolve all your issues on the spot.

Tripinsurance” operates all over the world, including Northern Cyprus. Agreements have been concluded with clinics in Girne, Iskele, Guzelyurt and Lefkosa. If an insured event occurs, you need to coordinate the clinic and the specialist. There is no need to pay for medical services on site.

"EVR" (Evro-Center) works with partners "Euro-Center Holding". Agreements for medical services have been concluded with many clinics in Northern Kirp. If an insured event occurs, you need to coordinate the clinic and the specialist. There is no need to pay for medical services on site. Expenses for medicines and taxis are paid upon returning home, provided receipts are available.

And a few more nuances. When purchasing a health insurance policy, double-check that the documents indicate Northern Cyprus. Many operators simply write Cyprus, which ALWAYS means the southern part of the island. To avoid ending up in an unpleasant situation without access to medical services, please clarify that you are specifically interested in Northern Cyprus.

If you come to the island to obtain a residence permit, then you'll need a medical policy from a local insurance company
