COVID certificate and vaccination for Swiss citizens living abroad
Anyone who has been vaccinated abroad with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and who is resident in or travelling to Switzerland will be able to obtain a Swiss COVID certificate. You can also apply for a Swiss COVID certificate if you have received a vaccine authorized by the WHO emergency use authorization protocol abroad. The documents can be submitted electronically to each canton (either last place of residence in Switzerland or place of origin).
Please consult the relevant FOPH page for details.
The Federal Council has decided to amend the Epidemics Ordinance. This means that Swiss citizens living abroad, and their immediate family (partners, children, parents and parents-in-law living in the same household), who do not have compulsory health insurance in Switzerland, can be vaccinated in Switzerland.
