Embassy of Switzerland in Belgium

Important information COVID-19

Travellers from Belgium, if entering Switzerland after 27 September midnight (00.00), must remain in quarantine for 10 days and should report to the competent cantonal authority within two days.

The introduction of a quarantine obligation for persons coming from certain countries or territories is based on objective and measurable criteria. In the case of Belgium, this is an incidence of more than 60 cases per 100,000 inhabitants calculated over a period of 14 days. In principle, a reassessment takes place every fortnight. Please note that people who enter Switzerland only to cross it with the intention and possibility of continuing their journey directly to another country are exempt from quarantine. The mandatory quarantine requirement does not apply to transit passengers who have spent less than 24 hours in a country or area with an increased risk of infection. Further exceptions are set down in Article 4 of the Covid-19 Ordinance on International Passenger Transport Measures. A negative test result does not exempt you from the mandatory quarantine requirement.
