Update on entry regulations

On June 23, 2021, the Federal Council decided to lift the entry restrictions for persons from third countries who are vaccinated.

For vaccinated third-country nationals, the regular entry requirements will apply again from June 26, 2021.

Entry restrictions continue to apply to foreign nationals who are not vaccinated and are without rights of free movement, entering from risk countries or regions and who do not belong to any of the exceptional categories of the Covid 19 Regulation 3.

For additional information, please consult the webpage of the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM).

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic there are special rules for people entering Switzerland. Please refer to the information of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).


Representation Agreements with Other Schengen States

Due to the visa restrictions in connection with COVID-19, Switzerland suspended the representation agreements with other Schengen states on 18 March 2020. They are currently still suspended. Following the Federal Council's decision of 23 June on entry facilitation, the FDFA is now sounding out with the other Schengen states at what point in time, at which location and under which modalities visa applications for travel to the Member State represented by Switzerland can be submitted again. At the present time, we are unfortunately unable to make any predictions as to when this will be possible again.
