Exit International created the Exit Swiss Assistance Programs in response to Exit Member inquiries about dying in Switzerland.

While Exit’s primary focus is on self-help methods of dying peacefully & reliably at a time of one’s choosing, we also recognize that some people may wish to make use of one of the several Swiss clinics which caters to foreigners.

Some people want to die in Switzerland in order to protect their loved ones from trouble with the law. Others like the idea of traveling to a distant land: one last hurrah, if you will. Some like the assurance that comes with going to a clinic that specializes in only one thing: a peaceful death.

Exit can also advise & assist with applications and paperwork as well as travel plans, hotels, your bucket list, what to say at immigration and more. We can meet you at the airport or travel to Switzerland with you.

What Exit cannot, and will not, do is encourage you to travel to Switzerland to die. The decision must be yours, and you must be acting of your own volition.

Furthermore, no one ever knows if they will actually go through with their death once they arrive in Switzerland; Exit often says that a person is going to Switzerland in order to make up their mind.

Exit publishes detailed information about the so-called ‘Swiss Option’ (including Swiss law) in the book – Going to Switzerland: how to plan your final exit
