Agreements with other countries
If you come from a country other than Switzerland or an EU or EEA country, you must pay the entire cost yourself if you need medical care in Sweden. This applies to both essential and planned medical care.
However, Sweden has medical care agreements (or "conventions") with certain countries. This means that temporary visitors from Australia, Algeria, Chile, Israel, Turkey and the Canadian state of Quebec can receive healthcare in Sweden under certain circumstances, such as maternity care. To find out what applies for visitors who are insured in these countries, contact the Swedish Social Insurance Agency on 0771-524 524.
