AV Care Swiss Ltd. does not charge a fee on the part of the applicants for any information and services regarding the placement process in Switzerland. We treat every single application with the utmost care, discretion and individuality.

In order to be able to work as a healthcare professional, the recognition of any and all foreign diplomas is required by law. This recognition serves to ensure quality for the Swiss healthcare sector and thus to ensure the safety of the people.

Each application is examined individually and one by one.

For workplace Switzerland (for EU citizens):
The Swiss Red Cross SRC is responsible for the nursing professions (the training must comply with the EU Directive „2005/36/EC; according to Annex 5.2.2 and/or 5.5.2“).

Prerequisite for the processing of the SRC application is the presentation of the complete documents. The first part (SRC PreCheck) is free of charge and clarifies the possibility of recognition (within 1- 2 months). After the positive PreCheck follows the final examination of the application by the expert (within 3 months). The fee depends on the qualification. The procedure for recognition at the SRC takes between 4 and 6 months from submission to issuance (without compensatory measures).

For the medical professions, the Medical Professions Commission MEBEKO is responsible (the submitted diploma must correspond to the EU Directive 2005/36/EC or the designation contained in the EFTA Convention).

The MEBEKO examines the application when the complete documents are available. After the written approval for the recognition the invoicing of the fee follows. The registration certificate with the assigned GLN number is sent to the applicant after payment of the fee invoice.

The procedure for recognition at MEBEKO takes between 3 and 5 months from submission to issuance.

For workplace Germany or Austria (applicants from non-EU countries):
In Germany, the respective Regional Councils are responsible for the recognition of foreign education (depending on the future employee’s place of work).

In Austria, nostrification (recognition procedure) takes place either via the Austrian universities of applied sciences or the local office of the provincial government, depending on the health profession.
