New measures for entering Switzerland
As of Saturday, January 22, the 3G rule applies to entry into Switzerland: Vaccinated, recovered, tested. Vaccinated and recovered persons no longer have to present a negative PCR or antigen rapid test before entering Switzerland.
For non-vaccinated and non-recovered persons, a negative test has to be presented prior to entry into Switzerland (PCR test not older than 72h or rapid antigen test not older than 24h). The obligation of a second test four to seven days after entry is waived.
No obligation to test for: Children under 16, persons with test dispensation, medical emergencies.
The Passenger Locator Form (PLF) must now only be completed by persons traveling to Switzerland by air or long-distance bus.
No test and form requirement for: Chauffeurs, persons passing through without a stopover.
Persons traveling through Switzerland without a stopping are exempt from the test and form requirement.
The validity period of all vaccination certificates is shortened from 365 to 270 days.
