Purchasing a health insurance in Georgia is advisable for international students, as there is no medical health insurance granted to foreign students freely.

In Georgia, foreign students have the choice to buy either local or international medical insurance paid on monthly basis for different packages which are in variance from $15 to 50 just to include basic medical treatment.

Medical insurance should be purchased before starting the semester, and it is mandatory to all foreign students, for that foreign students must ask about their international health insurance coverage whether it is valid on the Georgia’s territories.
