Information for Swiss travellers

The embassy monitors closely the situation in its consular district and makes all information available on this website. However, the following information is based on reports, which partially lack certainty or official confirmation, and is therefore without guarantee of accuracy and completeness.

All Swiss citizens currently travelling in our consular district are required to register on the Travel Admin travel application of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA.

Travelling Swiss citizens are further required to inquire about their travel options with their tour operators/airlines etc. or to organise their departure by themselves.

Travellers in Venezuela

Air traffic in Venezuela remains subject to significant restrictions. However, commercial flights to some destinations (currently Bolivia, Mexico, Turkey, Panama and supposedly the Dominican Republic) are again being operated. This list is not exhaustive and may change at any time.

Freedom of movement within the country is still restricted; domestic flights and bus services are only partially available. Use official websites and the media to keep up to date with the public health restrictions and follow the instructions of the security services.

Travellers in other parts of the consular district

Significant travel restrictions or sanitary measures upon entry are still in force in most States and new measures can be implemented in the very short term. Before starting your trip, please inquire about the legal conditions put in place. Find below the links to the official websites of these countries (this list is not exhaustive and the Embassy assumes no responsibility for the information that is published). It is the responsibility of each traveller to inquire about the provisions in force in the respective country of destination.
