There is only a handful of places in the world where Voluntary Euthanasia and/ or Assisted Suicide is currently legal. In most of these places (eg, Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, various US states etc), you must not only be a resident of the country or state, but you must be seriously ill or suffering.
Only in Switzerland can you get help to die as a foreigner.* This means you can fly in to Switzerland from another country for an assisted suicide. This makes Switzerland a unique country indeed.
* It was reported in 2018 that foreigners may be able to obtain euthanasia in NL if they could establish a “long standing relationship with a Dutch doctor”.
