Travel and Accommodation

Travel to Switzerland

IMPORTANT: New entry rules have been in force in Switzerland, according to which persons who cannot present a certificate of vaccination or recovery must present a negative antigen or PCR-test to enter the country. This applies regardless of the mode of transport. Further, four to seven days after entry, these persons must then be tested again for a fee.

Further, it is required to fill in a form before entering Switzerland https://swissplf.admin.ch/formular

If you are caught without they charge a fee of 100 CHF (you better spend that money on chocolate ;))

More information regarding entry and stay in Switzerland can be found here.
