Student health insurance is only valid from the official start of the semester (01 April / 01 October). If you arrive before the start of the semester, you should, if necessary, take out travel health insurance that is valid until the start of the semester.
Please contact a statutory health insurance company in Germany and show your EU Blue Insurance Card (EHIC), which you can get in your home country.
Non-EU citizens must take out health insurance with a German insurance provider. Insurance policies taken out in your home country are often insufficient in case of benefits and therefore cannot be accepted. Enrollment is not possible without German health insurance.
Important! Before taking out a health insurance policy (whether statutory or private), please always check whether its benefits meet your needs. Not all private health insurances are accepted by the Foreigners' Registration Office for the issuance of a residence permit. Therefore, please clarify this with the Aliens' Registration Office before taking out the insurance.
