  • Schengen Visa

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 ordinary provisions for entry into Switzerland will apply again as of 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.

To enquire which rules apply to your particular case, we advise you to consult directly the following page Travelcheck. Additional information, please consult the website of the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM).

As of 01.11.2021, the agreement between the Swiss and Spanish representations on the issuance of Schengen visas will come into force again. Thus, it will be possible to apply for the visa at the Spanish Embassy in La Paz and the Consulate General in Santa Cruz from the above-mentioned date. The aforementioned representation must be contacted for the requirements and procedure.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are special rules for people entering Switzerland. Please refer to the information of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).
