Health Insurance

During their stay in Brazil, foreigners are allowed to use the Brazilian Public Health System (SUS – Sistema Único de Saúde) only in case of emergency.


For this reason, the University of São Paulo requires exchange students to obtain a Travel Health Insurance plan, which must be acquired in their home country before they come to Brazil. This plan must last for the student’s entire stay in the country. It is the student’s full responsibility to choose their health insurance.
