New Entry Regulations for Switzerland (valid from 04.12.2021)

On 03.12.2021, the Federal Council adapted the border sanitary measures it had taken to slow down the spread of the Omikron virus variant in Switzerland as far as possible.

The changes will come into force on 04.12.2021, 00:00.

All entries on the list of states or territories with a virus variant of concern in Annex 1 of the Covid Regulation on the international movement of persons will be deleted. There is therefore no longer an entry quarantine.

A stricter testing obligation now applies upon entry. This testing obligation also applies to vaccinated and recovered persons and regardless of the country of origin (with the exception of the border regions of neighbouring countries). In addition to a PCR test before entry, a second test (PCR test or rapid antigen test) must be carried out between the fourth and seventh day after entry into Switzerland.

Exceptions apply for cross-border commuters and persons entering Switzerland from border regions. You do not have to fill out a contact form or take a test.

We would like to refer you to the media release, the FAQs in the appendix and the FOPH and SEM pages for further information:

New rules on entering Switzerland (from 20.09.2021)

Everyone entering Switzerland must present a completed entry form (rare exceptions may apply, please refer to art. 3 of the COVID-19 Ordinance on International Passenger Transport). It is important to fill out the electronic entry form on a computer or smartphone at the earliest 48 hours before the travel in order to receive a QR code by email. This code needs to be kept at hand for inspection upon arrival in Switzerland.
The controlling authority can impose a fine if the entry form is not completed or if the information provided is false.
