There is only a handful of places in the world where Voluntary Euthanasia / Assisted Suicide/ Assisted Dying is currently legal. In most of these places (eg. Netherlands, Belgium, Canada, various US States and in Australia etc.), not only must you be a resident of the country or state, but you must be seriously ill or suffering (eg. likely to die within 6 months).
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 unique.
* 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’.
