COVID-19 - Travelling and entry to Switzerland

Since 17th February, sanitary measures enforced at the borders on entry into Switzerland have been lifted, except for people coming from a country where a variant of the virus of concern is in circulation.

People coming from a country where a variant of the virus of concern is in circulation are subject to the following health requirements:

  • An entry form
  • A certificate of negative test and
  • Enforced quarantine
Currently there is no State or zone where a variant of the virus of concern is in circulation.

Prior to any health measures, a person must be allowed to enter Switzerland. This is determined by the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM).

It is specified that persons in possession of a Swiss passport or a valid residence permit may enter Switzerland regardless of the country of departure. However, they may be subject to health measures if they return from a country where a variant of concern of the virus is in circulation.
