On 18 March 2020, the Swiss Federal Council decided that entry at the Schengen external borders is generally prohibited with a few exceptions.
The Federal Department of Justice and Police (DFJP) announced in mid-May that the borders with Austria, Germany and France would be fully reopened on 15 June 2020 in agreement with the authorities of those countries. In view of the current pandemic situation, it will also be possible to lift the existing entry restrictions applicable in respect of other EU/EFTA countries and the United Kingdom on 15 June 2020.
The Federal Council will decide on further lifting the entry restrictions for third countries at a later date and in consultation with the Schengen member states.
Until further notice, Switzerland will no longer issue Schengen visas. National visas will only be issued in exceptional cases. In this context, please be informed that you are not allowed to enter Switzerland with a previously issued Schengen-visa type C.
