|While living in Germany, you are obliged by law to have a health
insurance for yourself and your accompanying family members. Proof of
sufficient health insurance coverage is needed in order to obtain a
residence permit or to conclude an employment contract for example.
We strongly recommend to contact IScO before your stay in Germany to discuss the completion of a health insurance contract especially if you are eligible to take up a private health insurance. To make sure you are insured the first few days of your stay it may be advisable to bring sufficient insurance coverage from your home country for this purpose.
