Health Insurance

In order to get enroled at a German university you will have to proove sufficient health insurance. More info about it can be found here.

For students who are cititzens of the European Union this is easily done by use of their European health insurance card (EHIC). For your enrolment as an exchange student you just need a copy of the card which should be valid for the whole time of your stay, though.

In case you don't have a EHIC, but brought private health insurance from your home country which is also valid in Germany you could obtain a waiver for the statutory health insurance requirement (the "Befreiung von der Versicherungspflicht") from one the German statutory health insurance companies. The "Befreiung" will then suffice for your enrolment. But please keep in mind that for the whole time of your studies in Germany you won't be able to get into the statutory health insurance system.

Please contact a statutory health insurance company to get the waiver! Close by we have the AOK on Hardenbergstr. 8 with office hours Mo - Thu between 10 am and 4 pm, the Techniker Krankenkasse in the TU travel agency in the main cafeteria with office hours on Thu from 10:30 am till 2:30 pm (talk to Mr. Arcones) or the Barmer which is located on Kurfürstenstraße 84 in 10787 Berlin (talk to Mr. Sachse).

If you don't have any health insurance at all you either have to get statutory health insurance or private health insurance (and then the "Befreiung") in Germany. Please keep in mind the health insurance information from the Immigration Office when obtaining your health insurance. If you get statutory health insurance you will need the confirmation form (three pages) for the enrollment.
