Swiss Border Entry Restrictions Eased

Very good news:

  • Pre-Departure test to Switzerland: As of Monday December 20th, for all travellers aged 16 and over, rapid antigen tests taken within the previous 24 hours will be accepted for entering Switzerland. A negative PCR not older than 72 hours is also acceptable.
  • Day 4-7 test in Switzerland: This second test is no longer necessary for vaccinated tourists staying in Switzerland.

Remember that you still need to fill out the Swiss Entry Form online in the 48 hours before you travel.  To double-check entry requirements for your personal case, do use the very useful official Swiss Travelcheck web tool, it is interactive and it will give you precise information about what you require depending on the data you input.
