A sum insured of CHF 50'000.- is necessary to obtain a visa (Switzerland or Schengen states).
To obtain a visa for Switzerland or the other Schengen states, sickness and accident insurance with a sum insured of at least CHF 50'000.- is necessary. It is important that coverage extends to the whole Schengen area and is valid for at least 180 days with a low deductible.

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

As regulations can often change, it is advised to check visa requirements with the appropriate embassy or consulate. You can also find additional information on the website of the Federal Office for Migration. With Allianz Travel, you will find a Schengen travel insurance (or Travel insurance for Schengen visa Switzerland) plan that exactly meets these requirements. Guests who do not need a visa for their visit can take out guest insurance from Allianz Travel with a sum insured from as little as CHF 10'000.-.
