Coronavirus Health Related Requirements for traveling to Switzerland
As of 17 February 2022, health-related measures for persons entering Switzerland have been lifted. It is no longer necessary to provide a proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative test, or to complete an entry form.
The COVID-19 certificate requirement within Switzerland for access to facilities such as cinemas, theatres, restaurants and events is lifted. For more information, kindly consult the website of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) Entering Switzerland and COVID-19 certificate.
Depending on the airline, different rules may apply. It is strongly recommended to contact your airline in time, in order to confirm the boarding requirements.
Important information "Entry into Switzerland and Visa for Switzerland"
Entry restrictions implemented by the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) are different from the health related requirements for traveling to Switzerland.
Effective from 02.05.2022, Japan is no longer considered a high-risk country. The normal entry requirements apply again to any person entering Switzerland.
To see what rules apply to your own particular situation when entering Switzerland please consult the online FOPH - Travel Check.
If your trip to Switzerland includes transit through another foreign country, you must also check the entry restrictions of that country.
Other countries might be on the list of risk countries of the SEM. Entry restrictions continue to apply for entry from these states. The list will be adjusted as necessary. We therefore recommend that you consult the website of the SEM regularly for more information
