Corona: Persons from third countries who are fully vaccinated can enter Switzerland again

Anyone who can prove that they have been fully vaccinated can once again enter Switzerland from a third country, i.e. a country outside the Schengen area. Furthermore, people entering Switzerland from the Schengen area are no longer required to quarantine. Only those who arrive in Switzerland by plane are still required to take a test, but even this requirement does not apply to persons who have been fully vaccinated or who have recovered from COVID-19.

To see what rules apply to your own particular situation when entering Switzerland, consult the online Travelcheck.
