Health care in Sweden for foreign citizens
The cost of your health care depends on what country you are from. In some cases, you can receive health care at the same cost as those insured in Sweden.
Healthcare in Sweden for asylum-seekers and people with no papers
If you are seeking asylum or have no papers, you have the right to emergency health and dental care in Sweden. Children under the age of 18, even those in hiding, are usually entitled to treatment free of charge.
The right to an interpreter
You have a right to receive understandable information about your state of health and about the process of the examination, health care or treatment that you need.
If it is difficult for you to understand and speak Swedish, you can receive help from an interpreter. There is no cost for this, but the surgery you are visiting may need to know about it in advance, so that they can book an interpreter.
