New entry rules for Switzerland

Switzerland is severely affected by COVID-19. Switzerland is classified as a high-risk area. German nationals can currently enter Switzerland in principle.

Since 4 December 2021, a basic PCR test obligation applies to all entrants regardless of area of origin, means of transport and vaccination status. Entry is only possible with a negative test result.

In addition, a second Covid test must be carried out between the fourth and seventh day after entry. The result must be reported to the responsible canton without being asked. The first test before entry must be a PCR test (validity max. 72 hours), the second test can be a PCR or antigen test. There is currently no quarantine obligation.

In addition to the newly introduced testing obligation, all travellers, irrespective of their country of origin and means of transport, are obliged to complete the so-called Passenger Locator Form (PLF) and to present it upon entry. Failure to do so may result in fines. Persons under 16 years of age are exempt from the testing requirement.
