Travelling to Switzerland

Since 3 November 2020, Switzerland is open again for non-essential travel from Singapore and therefore short-term Schengen visa applications (visa type C) will be accepted. The regular visa requirements and border procedures apply. For more information about travelling to Switzerland from Singapore, consult the webpage of the State Secretariat for Migration SEM or contact the embassy.

For information how to book an appointment and to submit a visa application, please visit the website of VFS Global.

At its meeting on 27 January 2021, the Federal Council took a range of decisions to further contain and overcome the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the following rules will apply as per 8 February 2021:

PCR Test

All persons arriving by air - even from a country that is not considered high risk like Singapore today – must present on boarding a valid proof of a negative PCR test that is no more than 72 hours old. Boarding will only be allowed for travelers holding such a valid proof of a negative PCR test. Children under the age of 12 are never required to provide proof of a negative coronavirus test upon entering Switzerland. They are exempt from the test obligation.

Contact Tracing

Until now, only the contact details of people arriving in Switzerland from a high-risk country or region have been recorded. From now on, all persons arriving from abroad by air, boat, bus or train must complete an online form on arrival. With this information, cases of infection can be identified more easily and transmission chains broken more rapidly. Please consult this website for the complete information regarding the changes. 

Travellers entering Switzerland from Singapore are currently not required to undergo a mandatory self-quarantine for 10 days in Switzerland unless they spent, within the last 14 days before departure, time in a risk destination according to a regularly updated list by the Federal Office of Public Health.

Transit through Singapore

Changi Airport allows transit with authorised airlines. Transit lanes are specifically granted airline-by-airline and are limited in scope. Travellers wishing to transit through Changi Airport are encouraged to contact their chosen airlines directly to ensure they are able to complete their full journey.

Entry into Singapore for Swiss short-term visitors

With few exceptions, short-term visitors are not allowed to enter Singapore.

Entry into Singapore for Swiss citizens residing in Singapore

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) is restricting the entry/re-entry of work pass holders, including their dependents, into Singapore. All work pass holders are required to obtain the MOM’s approval before they commence their journey to Singapore. Moreover, long-term pass holders (this includes holders of a Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP), a Student’s Pass (STP), and those with an In-Principle Approval (IPA) for a Long-Term Pass) who are planning to enter Singapore must obtain the permission of the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority before they commence their journey to Singapore.

Furthermore, incoming passengers must submit online health declarations up to three days before arrival. Arrivers then must serve a Stay-Home-Notice (SHN) for 21 days at government-designated premises.

More permissive rules apply to travellers from select countries. 

For the latest binding information, consult the website of the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority and work pass holders the Ministry of Manpower before traveling to Singapore.

Register the Swiss Travel Admin App on your smartphone so that you can be contacted by the relevant Swiss embassy in an emergency.
