5. Request for derogation

Persons who do not meet the exemption criteria and wish to benefit from an derogation can apply to derogation.covid@etat.ge.ch.

Each individual situation is examined on a case-by-case basis. The derogation may be refused or concessions may be granted.

Applications are processed within a maximum of 4 days.

A request must be submitted personally or, in the case of a minor person, by his/her legal guardian.

 

Examples of derogations

A derogation is available for persons attending the funeral of a family member or accompanying a family member for urgent medical treatment lasting more than 5 days.

There is no exemption for students, pupils who have taken a language course nor for people who have resided in isolated places.

Entry restrictions for high-risk countries are still applicable. The State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) is responsible for this matter.
