Health and safety when travelling
Medical information and recommendations for travel destinations
Country-specific information regarding recommended vaccinations, malaria and general health-related risks:
Travel advice from the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs
The travel advice from the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs provides information about the safety situation in the different countries. However, the final decision on whether or not to travel always rests with you.
Telephone advice about health risks in the travel destination
If you have TOP or COMPLETA supplementary health care insurance, an expert will offer you free-of-charge and personal advice before your trip over the phone. You will be informed of any individual or health-related risks in your travel destination.
The Travelcheck hotline for your personal health consultation: +41 43 340 16 22
Please note: The ideal time to seek telephone advice is four to six weeks before departure. This provides sufficient time to arrange any necessary vaccinations.
