If you would like to practise your healthcare profession in another country, ask us for a registration certificate. It will state that you are permitted to practise your profession in Switzerland.
Why do I need a certificate?

What do I need to do?
A certificate will only be issued if you are registered in the Swiss register of healthcare professions (GesReg / NAREG) maintained by the SRC. If you are already registered, we will need the following documentation:

If you are not yet registered
We will issue you with a Certificate of Non-Registration. This is confirmation that you are not listed in the register.

You will receive your registration certificate within ten days. It may take longer if any documents are missing from your application. In this case, we will contact you to request them.
