COVID-19 - Travelling and entry to Switzerland

During its session of 16th February 2022, the Federal Council decided to lift nearly all protective measures, including the entry regulations. 

Hence, since 17th February, sanitary measures applied at the borders on entry into Switzerland are lifted. It is therefore no longer necessary for persons who aren't arriving from a country at risk to present :

  • A vaccination certificate or
  • A recovery certificate or
  • A certificate of negative test and
  • An entry form

Persons coming from a country at risk according to the list of the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) with the exception of Swiss citizens and persons with a Swiss residence permit, must present proof of full vaccination in order to undertake a sojourn in Switzerland which isn't subject to authorisation (e.g. visits, tourism). 

Border measures may furthemore be reinstated for States or areas where a variant of concern is circulating. To date, there are no States or areas with a variant of concern according to the FOPH list.
