1. Travelling to Switzerland
From 22 January, persons who have been vaccinated or have recovered from Covid will no longer need to present a negative PCR or antigen rapid test for entry into and transit through Switzerland. Persons who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered still need a test.

Everyone entering Switzerland by airplane or on long-distance bus service 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.
