Novel Coronavirus - COVID19

News: As of 04.12.2021, new provisions governing entry into Switzerland and access to the COVID certificate for persons vaccinated abroad.

Entry into the country: abolition of quarantines, reinforcement of screening obligations

To prevent the importation of the variant Omicron as much as possible, the screening requirements that apply to entry into Switzerland have been tightened. All persons entering the country, including those who have been vaccinated and recovered, must be tested. In addition to a PCR test before entry, they will have to undergo a second test, either PCR or antigenic, between the fourth and seventh day after arrival. This second test is intended to ensure the detection of people who may have become infected just before leaving or during their journey. These tests are at the expense of the persons concerned.

All persons entering Switzerland must comply with Switzerland's border sanitary measures. The interactive Travelcheck shows you which measures apply to you.

Everyone entering Switzerland must present a completed entry form (rare exceptions may apply, please refer to art. 3 of the COVID-19 Ordinance on International Passenger Transport). It is important to fill out the electronic entry form on a computer or smartphone at the earliest 48 hours before the travel in order to receive a QR code by email. This code needs to be kept at hand for inspection upon arrival in Switzerland. The controlling authority can impose a fine if the entry form is not completed or if the information provided is false.
