Application Assistance Program

The Application Assistance Program (AAP) provides help with the paperwork required for a VAD in Switzerland. Getting the ‘green light’ will depend, in part, about the efficient collation & submission of these important documents.

Depending on the clinic selected, the assistance may also include help with the online application, expert knowledge in regard to which documents must be newly (re)issued and often certified by a notary public, which papers one must take personally to Switzerland, as well as liaising with the clinic concerned to ensure that everything is in order.

In short, Exit can guide and assist with all aspects of your application ensuring that you have the best chance possible of getting the ‘green light’ and having your end of life wishes respected.

This Application Assistance Program (AAP) includes, but is not limited to, assistance with:

  • online & offline application forms
  • collation of official documents from government agencies
  • document and costs, advice, review & submission
  • representations on your behalf to the chosen clinic
  • travel & accommodation advice/ guidance

This is a fee service. To find out more, please contact Sean Davison.

Need to Know Information

Note 1 – Exit is unable to 100% guarantee an applicant the ‘green light’ of approval. That decision rests with the doctors who consult to the clinic concerned. If Exit considers that a person is unlikely to obtain a green light, this will be stated at the outset of the process.

Note 2 – Exit can only assist people to go to Switzerland who fulfill the following criteria:

  • You have mental capacity
  • Your desire to go to Switzerland for an assisted death is a voluntary, clear, settled, informed and long-held decision
  • You approach Exit Switzerland of your own volition

Note 3 – Exit’s sole motivation in providing information and assistance about dying in Switzerland is compassion – that you get the peaceful, reliable and lawful death that you desire.
