Important notice for the Swiss community in Iraq

Vaccination for the Swiss abroad

The Swiss Abroad must comply with the vaccination requirements of their country of residence.

For logistical reasons, no vaccine deliveries are planned by the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs to its citizens abroad. However, Swiss nationals insured under the Swiss compulsory health insurance (basic insurance) with a Swiss insurance provider can be vaccinated in Switzerland. The current vaccination plan (priority for certain target groups) applies to all citizens, including to Swiss abroad. If you want to register for vaccination, please contact your health insurance provider and/or your Swiss doctor. 

Swiss nationals abroad not covered by a Swiss health insurance policy should contact their health insurance provider to find out about the vaccination policy in their country of residence.
