Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Swiss Federal Council decided to restrict entry into Switzerland.
Currently, travelers from Malaysia are not allowed to enter Switzerland, with the exception of the cases listed here, under the point “who has the right of free movement” & “who is not affected by the ban on entry to Switzerland”.
If you do not need a visa (visa exempted as for Malaysian nationals) or you are holding a Schengen Visa C and you do not fall under the entry ban, the Regional consular center in Bangkok might issue a Laissez-Passer to facilitate entry into Switzerland. Please contact the visa section by email.
- Holders of a valid Swiss National Visa D (for family reunion, study, work, etc.) are allowed to enter
- If you are visa exempted (Malaysian nationals) the Regional Consular Center in Bangkok might issue a Laissez-Passer. Please contact the visa section by email.

Negative PCR Test (Certificate in English)
All persons arriving in Switzerland by air must present a valid certificate stating a negative PCR test result on arrival. The certificate must be issued in English and not be older than 72 hours at the time of arrival. Without valid certificate, the boarding of airplanes to Switzerland will be denied. Exceptions are listed here, however, each airline has its own rules for combatting the pandemic and therefore we strongly recommend to contact your airline in time, in order to confirm the exception.
All persons entering Switzerland by air, boat, bus or train, must complete an online form on arrival. This information helps to identify infected persons more easily, and to break transmission chains as soon as possible. More information and a download of the form are provided here.
