Vaccines and safety in Sweden

Vaccines and local diseases

No vaccinations are required for visitors. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) certifies your entitlement to health insurance in Europe. During a temporary stay in a member state of the European Union, it entitles you to reimbursement of medically necessary treatment. We recommend that you take out additional insurance.

Safety in Sweden

Although Sweden remains one of the safest countries in Europe, there has been an increase in violence linked to drug trafficking and organized crime. We advise you to be vigilant and avoid going to certain outlying areas of major cities at night. In addition, take note of the recommendations issued by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs before you leave.

Health and repatriation insurance in Sweden

Why take out international health insurance when traveling or living in Sweden? Quite simply because healthcare costs can quickly reach very high levels abroad. Repatriation cover is also an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident, medical repatriation to the nearest medical center or to the country of residence may be necessary. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to charter a helicopter or medical aircraft.
