Health Insurance

ICTP offers health insurance to invited scientists who are nationals of developing countries and do not have valid health insurance.

Visitors with official documents verifying their participation in a national health insurance programme (with coverage comparable to that of Italy's) do not need to obtain health insurance in Italy. All visitors must verify that their home country's national health insurance programme is recognised in Italy.

Please note, Italian law requires all foreigners to have valid health insurance coverage. Failure to comply could result in a denial of permission to stay on Italian territory. For more details, consult the web page "How to fulfill the health insurance requirement".
