- Paper
The standard documents are the basic documents that the students are asking for and the special documents are less important, as only some Local Committees ask for them. So it's mandatory to upload the standard documents, but not the special ones. (Students do it when asked for by the LEO/NEO.)
The upon arrival documents are hard copies documents that the students are requested to take with them in the host country.”
Immunization requirements
HepB antibodies

Insurance

Insurances that we require: 

  • Health insurance must be uploaded in the Card of Documents immediately after receiving the CA and then shown to the LEO upon arrival. Health insurance can also be arranged in upon arrival in Near East University Hospital. 
  • Accident insurance must be uploaded in the Card of Documents immediately after receiving the CA and then shown to the LEO upon arrival. In some cases and in some LC's the student can be insured directly from the hospital where the internship will take place, therefore we suggest you discuss the topic with your hosting LEO right after receiving the CA.
  • Travel insurance is NOT required. It is not necessary for doing an internship in Northern Cyprus. If you wish to draw up a travel insurance policy, you must do it on your own but you can ask your hosting LEO for any advice.
  • Malpractice insurance is NOT required. Only people who have the official responsibility of performing a medical procedure (health professionals) can draw up a malpractice insurance policy. Since medical students are not yet qualified to practice the medical profession, you cannot be insured with this type of policy and it's not possible to draw it up in Northern Cyprus if you are a student.
