More information

In principle, there is no quarantine obligation for entries from travelers domiciliated in the Schengen area.

Proven vaccinated third country nationals (from outside the Schengen area) can enter in a simplified way.  

Entry form

Unvaccinated/ non-recovered  guests must present two negative test results: one upon entry into Switzerland, and one after four to a maximum of seven days.
All entrants (vaccinated / recovered / tested) must also complete the entry form "SwissPLF".  

In case of uncertainties about the entry regulations, the Travel Check of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health provides information on whether entry is possible or not.

Important: Travellers must inquire with their national authorities about the exact travel conditions before starting their trip.
