Whenever you receive income from a Dutch source and therefore pay social premiums, you are obligated to have a Dutch basic health insurance. The TU Delft offers you a range of basic and additional insurances with a discount on the additional insurances and good conditions through insurance advisor International Insurances. Please be advised by International Insurances, because it is not allowed to change your insurance for a whole year.


Are you accompanied by family members?
Are you coming to the Netherlands before the starting date of your working contract or does registration take longer? Then we advise you to get a temporary health insurance. Scroll further down for more information. Also if you are accompanied by family members or when they join you later.

When do you need a temporary health insurance?

Are you going to receive income in the Netherlands? Then you are obligated to have a Dutch basic health insurance. The lawful starting date of your insurance is the same date as you registered at the municipality, received the BSN and residence permit for non-EU nationals. Important is as well that you started to work.


Sometimes it takes a while to get registered and to receive the BSN and residents permit. In that case you need a temporary private health insurance.


We, International Insurances can help you with this. You can apply for the MasterPlan+ with insurance company Insure to Study.


This is the same private insurance we offer students TU Delft.


The premium is per month € 59,50 per month (30 days) € 1,98 per day.


You can start the insurance from the day you leave your country to fly to the Netherlands. You can apply for one or two months.


When it takes longer to receive your BSN and residence permit, you can always extend your insurance.


As soon as your Dutch basic health insurance is active we can end the private insurance MasterPlan+ from the same day as your Dutch basic health insurance started. Please inform us about this.


Are you from Europe and have an EHIC, which is still valid and active? Then a temporary health insurance is not necessary.
