For TK, you will be required to pay from your university's semester start date, as shown on your certificate of enrolment. The payment will only be taken once you have arrived in Germany and have activated your insurance.
This regulation has been provided by the authorities, and unfortunately we cannot advise on your payment agreement with our insurance provider.
We understand that your university can support you further regarding the exemptions available and payment of your insurance.
For anyone insured using private health insurance (which is provided by DR WALTER), you will need to begin the payment process as soon as you arrive into Germany.
