Applicable regulations for entry into Switzerland
When entering Switzerland the following provisions must be observed depending on the personal situation.
At various times you will be asked to show a negative test result. These provisions also apply to people who have been vaccinated or recovered from COVID, and regardless of what country they enter from.
On boarding: On boarding, everyone aged 16 and over intending to enter Switzerland by air or bus must be able to show the negative result of a PCR test (performed no more than 72 hours prior to boarding) or a rapid antigen test (performed no more than 24 hours previously). If you cannot show such a test you will not be allowed to board the aircraft or vehicle. Note: For people entering Switzerland from a country with a variant of concern, the test requirement on boarding already applies to those aged 6 and over.
On entry to Switzerland: On entering Switzerland, everyone aged 16 and over must be able to show the negative result of a PCR test (performed no more than 72 hours prior to entry) or a rapid antigen test (performed no more than 24 hours previously). Anyone unable to present a valid negative PCR test, must take a test immediately on arrival (PCR or rapid antigen test).
Did you get a PCR test in Switzerland before departure and are re-entering Switzerland within 72 hours? When staying abroad for more than 24 hours, we highly recommend you get another test before returning to Switzerland.
After entering Switzerland: Are you not vaccinated or recovered? Then you must take another PCR test or rapid antigen test between the 4th and 7th day after entry. This applies to people age 16 and over. For people entering the country and leaving before day 7 (and staying for 6 nights), another PCR or rapid antigen test is not obligatory but recommended. The test result and the number of the entry form or a copy of the contact card must be notified to the canton.
Have you received a negative test result? In this case you must report this to the canton in the form of a COVID test certificate. Have you received a positive test result? In this case, notify the canton of the test result. The costs of the test are borne by the person themselves.
Exceptions to the testing requirement can be viewed on the federal website.
