COVID-19 - Travelling and entry to Switzerland

Entry form for Switzerland

Since September 20, 2021, all persons arriving in Switzerland must fill out an entry form, regardless of their vaccination status, country of departure, and mode of transportation.

The obligation to fill out the entry form also applies to children and adolescents of all ages. They can be declared on that of an adult traveling with them.

On the other hand, border residents and people coming from a border area with Switzerland*, as well as people in transit and those transporting goods or people as part of their professional activity, are exempt from this obligation.

Entry test for persons not vaccinated or not cured of Covid-19

If you are not fully vaccinated or have not recovered from Covid-19 within the last six months, in addition to the entry form to be completed, you are also subject to mandatory testing. You will have to present a negative PCR or rapid antigen test result on two occasions:

Upon arrival in Switzerland : a PCR test (done less than 72 hours before departure) or a rapid antigenic test (done less than 48 hours before departure), to be presented with the completed entry form.
4 to 7 days after your arrival : a few days after your arrival, you must do a new PCR test or rapid antigenic test in Switzerland. 

However, children under 16 years of age, border residents and people coming from a border area with Switzerland*, as well as people in transit and those transporting goods or people in the course of their professional activity, and people exempted from SARS-CoV-2 testing for medical reasons, are exempted from the obligation to be tested on entry and tested within 4 to 7 days.

* France (departments): Grand-Est, Bourgogne/Franche Comté, Auvergne/Rhône-Alpes - Germany (Länder): Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria - Italy (regions): Piemonte/Aosta Valley, Lombardy, Trentino/South Tyrol - Austria (federal states): Tyrol, Vorarlberg - Liechtenstein

 

IMPORTANT: You do not need to self-report the result of the test which should be done 4-7 days after your arrival. However, if requested by the health authorities, you must be able to transmit it immediately to the address indicated to you. Controls are carried out and the absence of transmission of the test is sanctioned by a fine (up to 1000 CHF).
