Further information can be found on the websites listed below. Due to the large number of enquiries, please refrain from contacting us by telephone regarding travel and Covid-19.

COVID-19 travel restrictions

For information in connection with the new coronavirus (COVID-19), the information and instructions of the local authorities (Israeli Ministry of Health) as well as the recommendations of the World Health Organisation (WHO) must be observed in particular. At federal level, the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH informs the population about the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The FDFA asks all travelers abroad to register their journey and place of stay on the Travel Admin App to ensure that the representation can contact you.

Travelling to Switzerland

On 22 January 2022, new entry regulations for Switzerland will come into force. Accordingly, travellers from Israel who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19 will no longer be required to undergo testing for entry into Switzerland from this date. Please note that an entry form must be completed within 48 hours prior to entry (to the entry form). 

Please use the Swiss travel check tool to find out the conditions for entering Switzerland and which COVID-19 related measures apply to you when entering.

Travelling to Israel

Due to the global COVID-19 situation, the requirements for entering Israel have changed. As of January 9, 2022, travelers without Israeli citizenship or residency may again enter Israel under certain conditions.

The Israeli Ministry of Health provides information on its website about the currently applicable entry and quarantine regulations.

As of 07.01.2022, Switzerland was removed from the list of Corona high-risk countries (red list).
