Medical Insurance


Rangjung Yeshe Institute does not require students to be covered by medical insurance while studying with in Nepal. However, RYI strongly recommends that all international students have health insurance. If you have health insurance, please bring a copy of your insurance card to the administration office so that we can help in case of medical emergency.

Please note that it is not currently possible for international students to purchase international health insurance or emergency evacuation insurance from any agency in Nepal itself. RYI recommends finding a provider online. A list of providers may be found at Please note that these companies are neither affiliated with, nor endorsed by, RYI.

All students are required to complete an emergency information form and student counselor questionnaire before the start of classes.
