Embassy of Switzerland in Netherlands

Important information for Swiss tourists in the Netherlands: The Federal Council advises against all non-emergency trips to the Netherlands and to return to Switzerland.

Based on the latest information, it is assumed that air traffic to Switzerland from Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands will be massively reduced and possibly discontinued altogether. If you are currently in Belgium, Luxemburg or the Netherlands and wish to depart, please take up contact with your travel agent or travel company to find a solution for your return to Switzerland as soon as possible.

It is recommended that Swiss tourists register on the Travel App of the FDFA Travel App. See Federal Council press release of 19.03.2020.
