Schengen Travel Insurance

Schengen insurance Switzerland - Visitor's visa

Security for your visitors from abroad

If you have friends or relatives come to visit you in Switzerland from a non-Schengen member state such as Russia or Tunisia, most visitors require a visa for Switzerland. In order to obtain a Schengen visa, there are various formalities, including taking out sickness and accident travel insurance for the period of their visit.

Citizens from some countries, such as Brazil, do not need a visa, but still require travel insurance. Your guests can then move freely in the Schengen area. With this type of medical expenses insurance from Allianz Global Assistance, your guests can get coverage starting at a low sum insured for a small premium.

Since regulations can often change, it is better to contact the appropriate embassy or consulate. You can also find additional information on the website of the Federal Office for Migration.
