The tasks of the embassy

Changes of the Covid Regulations on the International Movement of Persons (valid from 22.01.2022)

In view of the tense situation in hospitals, the Federal Council is extending the measures against the spread of the coronavirus.

The 3G rule (vaccinated, recovered or tested negative) now applies to entry and boarding. This means that the obligation for vaccinated and recovered persons to show a negative result of a PCR or a rapid antigen test before entering Switzerland will be lifted. In addition, the obligation to carry out a test between the fourth and seventh day after entry will be lifted and the collection of contact details (SwissPLF) will now be limited to persons entering Switzerland by air and long-distance buses.

We would like to refer you to the media release and the pages of the FOPH and the SEM for further information:

Rules on entering Switzerland

Everyone entering Switzerland must present a completed entry form (rare exceptions may apply, please refer to art. 3 of the COVID-19 Ordinance on International Passenger Transport). It is important to fill out the electronic entry form on a computer or smartphone at the earliest 48 hours before the travel in order to receive a QR code by email. This code needs to be kept at hand for inspection upon arrival in Switzerland.
Keep this code handy for inspection when you arrive in Switzerland. During these checks, you can show the QR code on your smartphone or a printed confirmation.
If you have not filled out the entry form despite the obligation to do so, the controlling authority can punish you with a CHF 100 fine. The same applies if you provide false information on the form.
