After you have arrived in Germany and have successfully activated your TK insurance on your Expatrio Portal, we will send your activation data to TK.
Please note that the TK activation process takes 2-4 weeks. Once the activation of your insurance is complete, TK will then send you a letter named "Passport photo for TK eHealth card".
You will then have to submit your photo to receive your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from TK.
You can find information on how to do this here: "How do I submit my passport photo for the insurance card?"
Do not worry, you will be covered by the TK public health insurance even before you receive your EHIC. If you need to go to the doctor, you can take your TK insurance certificate with you as proof of your insurance. TK will then reimburse you for the cost of the care you receive after the activation of your insurance.
