Important information COVID-19
Entering Switzerland from Belgium
All travellers entering Switzerland – whether vaccinated, recovered or with a negative test – must complete the entry form (Passenger Locator Form, SwissPLF).
For vaccinated and recovered persons with a Covid certificate or other valid proof of vaccination or recovery, no testing obligation applies.
Anyone who has not been vaccinated or has not recovered must present a negative test result (antigen or PCR) on entry into Switzerland, irrespective of where they are travelling from or by which means of transport they are entering the country. After four to seven days in the country, another test must be carried out, subject to a fee. The result of the second test must be sent to the relevant cantonal office.
The vaccination must be approved in Switzerland or by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). A person infected with Covid-19 is considered to have recovered from the 11th day after the positive test result. A PCR test must be less than 72h old, a rapid antigen test must be less than 48h old. The EU digital Covid certificate, which is valid in the Schengen area, is valid in Switzerland.
Transit: The test and entry form requirements do not apply to travellers in transit through Switzerland without stopping, drivers who transport people or goods professionally, and cross-border commuters or people entering from border areas.
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).
