Are FreeStyle Libre sensors and/or readers compatible across different countries and markets?

FreeStyle Libre sensors are programmed for sale in a specific market and are compatible with readers sold, compatible apps and software downloaded in that market:

  • FreeStyle Libre sensors in one market are not necessarily compatible with FreeStyle Libre readers or apps from other markets.
  • FreeStyle Libre users should plan on purchasing sufficient sensors from the same country they purchased their reader or downloaded their app from, to last the duration of their travel.
  • If planning a longer-term trip overseas, it is advisable to obtain a new reader or download a compatible app and software from that country, to be able to purchase and use the sensors available in that country.
