Healthcare and social insurance

It is important to have health insurance while staying in Sweden.

Whether or not you are covered by the Swedish health and social insurances depends on a variety of factors. Thus, before leaving for Sweden, you should contact the social insurance agency in your home country to let them know that you will be staying/working in Sweden. They will then inform you of the applicable regulation.
