Embassy of Switzerland in Belgium

Important information COVID-19

Entry into Switzerland from Monday 20 December 2021: All persons entering Switzerland from Belgium, including vaccinated or cured persons, must present a negative test (rapid antigenic test of 24 hours maximum or PCR of 72 hours maximum). Persons who are not vaccinated or cured will have to undergo a second test, PCR or antigenic, between the fourth and seventh day after their arrival.  Anyone entering Switzerland, even if they have been cured or vaccinated, must also present the completed entry form

Transit

Plane: The Swiss PLF form must be completed in any case.

  • If you do not leave the airport, no test is required. However, it is advisable to consult the airline as they may still require a test for boarding.
  • If you are leaving the airport to use another mean of transport to leave Switzerland directly, a negative test must be presented on arrival in Switzerland.

Car/bus/train: Provided there is NO stopover, no test needs to be presented (unless required by the transport company) and the Swiss PLF form does not need to be completed.

Keep yourself informed about the situation in Switzerland as it can change constantly. It is therefore important to regularly consult the website of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).
