Healthcare and Health Insurance

in Italy

Getting health insurance is a requirement of most visas. You usually will have to have sorted it out before arriving in Italy.

Here are some health insurance agencies for short-term travelers and students:

Seven Corners

Nobis

Once you are here, if you’re not in the national health system through your job, you have an option to buy into the system either for a flat annual rate (from January to December) for students or as a part of your income if you are on an elective residence visa or other such situations.

Contact us if you need help registering.
