Health Care

All students must have a health insurance plan that covers medical expenses and repatriation since the day you leave your country.

For this reason, UNICAMP demands that visitors obtain health insurance (travel insurance), which should be purchased in their home country prior to their arrival in Brazil.

The insurance policy must be valid for the entire period of intended stay in the country. The choice of a specific travel insurance or another is the visitors responsibility.


At UNICAMP, all registered students can also count with our internal care center for students,staff and teachers. It is called CECOM and offers medical and dental assistance.
