Medical care is excellent. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is valid for nationals of EU and EFTA countries. The EHIC regulates care and reimbursement of costs in the event of illness for EU and EFTA citizens. In the event of illness, EHIC holders contact a doctor or a hospital directly. Outpatient medical care is provided by doctors in private practices or, in exceptional cases, by the emergency room at Vaduz Hospital. The EHIC does not include repatriation after a serious illness or an accident abroad. Statutory health insurance companies are not allowed to offer this service. Only private travel insurance companies pay for return transport. Check directoryaah for more information.

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is also transmitted by ticks from April to October. In addition to the protective measures mentioned above, a vaccination is also possible.
