If you need to be evacuated out of Sweden for treatment we’ve got you covered. We include evacuation and repatriation as standard on all our plans.

Cover in Sweden and wherever you go

An international health plan means you have the flexibility to go anywhere in the world and know that you can access the care you need, when you need it. We like to make it simple, so all you need to do is choose which area of cover you’d like - anywhere in the world or everywhere except the USA. Then you’re covered everywhere in your area, whether you’re in Sweden, visiting friends and family, on holiday or travelling for work. 

Our plans are designed to cover treatment of conditions you develop after you join. For details about what our plans do and don’t cover visit our How it works page.

We’ll be by your side

As you settle into your new life in Sweden and enjoy exploring this beautiful country, you shouldn’t have to worry about your health cover. You can feel safe in the knowledge that you’ve got the support of one of the world’ largest insurers by your side. AXA has been looking after the health cover needs of expats for over 50 years, and our team of experts are here to help you 24/7.

Short term cover

Need cover for 3 to 11 months?

If you’re living or working internationally for less than a year, take a look at our short term International Health Plan. It gives you all the benefits of our Standard cover level, but for a shorter time. So whether you’re only away for a few months, still weighing up your options or you want cover while you apply for your local state healthcare system, our short term plan could be ideal.
