Swiss Insurance: Required and recommended Guidance for international people


We'll get you set up easily

  • Health insurance is mandatory in Switzerland and you are liable to pay it from day 1.
  • Residential accommodation can often only be rented once you hold a Swiss third-party liability insurance - including home contents insurance policy is recommended.
  • Further optional insurance is highly recommended in Switzerland. Examples are Legal Protection, Travel Insurance or Pet Insurance.

Being well insured in Switzerland is vital, given the high cost of living and the numerous rules and regulations.
