The tasks of the Embassy


Coronavirus (COVID-19)

On June 23, 2021, the Federal Council decided to lift the entry restrictions for persons from third countries who are vaccinated.

For vaccinated third-country nationals, the regular entry requirements will apply again from June 26, 2021.

Entry restrictions continue to apply to foreign nationals who are not vaccinated and are without rights of free movement, entering from risk countries or regions and who do not belong to any of the exceptional categories of the Covid 19 Regulation 3.

Find out which COVID-19 related measures apply to you when entering Switzerland via the new interactive travel check tool. Further detailed and updated information on entry rules is available via the following links: Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH)State Secretariat for Migration (SEM)

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has become a worldwide pandemic and national guidelines and international travel restrictions are constantly changing and evolving, often at short notice. 

UPDATE regarding Swiss COVID Certificate: As of 20 September, anyone who has been vaccinated abroad with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency EMA will be able to obtain a Swiss COVID certificate via the cantonal authorities in Switzerland. In a transitional phase from 20 September until 10 October 2021, all foreign vaccination certificates for EMA-approved vaccines will be valid for access to events or facilities requiring a COVID certificate (see press release of the Federal Council). After this date the Swiss COVID certificate will be required. For further questions concerning the Swiss COVID certificate and its application please consult the relevant website of the Federal Office of Public Health and its COVID certificate FAQs.

For more information on COVID-19 related measures when entering Switzerland, please visit the website of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and consult the relevant FAQs. For urgent inquiries that are not answered by the FAQs, travelers may contact the competent helpline.

Representation Agreements with Other Schengen States

Due to the visa restrictions in connection with COVID-19, Switzerland suspended the representation agreements with other Schengen states on 18 March 2020. They are currently still suspended. Following the Federal Council's decision of 23 June on entry facilitation, the FDFA is now sounding out with the other Schengen states at what point in time, at which location and under which modalities visa applications for travel to the Member State represented by Switzerland can be submitted again. At the present time, we are unfortunately unable to make any predictions as to when this will be possible again.
