Can I fly to Basel right now?

There are currently restrictions on flights to Basel along with the rest of Switzerland. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Entry restrictions

Switzerland has allowed travelers with a Swiss passport or a valid residence permit in Switzerland to enter. Entry restriction may apply to all other people. There are no longer any entry restrictions related to coronavirus for persons arriving from Schengen and EU countries or from the small European states Andorra, the Vatican/Holy See, Monaco and San Marino as well as certain third countries. The normal entry requirements apply to persons arriving from these states. For all other third-country citizens traveling directly from a high-risk country, entry restrictions apply when they enter Switzerland, for example for a holiday, visit or other reason. Persons who do not have rights of free movement and do not hold a valid permit allowing them to live or work in Switzerland will not be permitted to enter Switzerland from a high-risk country for stays of less than 90 days that do not require authorization, other than in cases of special necessity. Entry rules can change very quickly depending on the epidemiological situation. Check FOPH’s list of high-risk countries for more details. Travelers from the UK and South Africa are not permitted entry to Switzerland. UK nationals and other non-Swiss/Liechtenstein nationals arriving from a “high risk-country” outside of the Schengen area are not permitted entry to Liechtenstein. These restrictions do not apply to UK nationals who are legally resident in Switzerland. They will be allowed to re-enter the country, but will need to present proof of residency, i.e. a Swiss residence permit (L / B / C / Ci permits). Holders of a cross-border permit (G permit), an FDFA legitimation card, a D visa issued by Switzerland and holders of a ‘laissez passer’ issued by a Swiss representation in cases of ‘individual special necessity’ may also enter the country. Travelers from other countries who have the necessary visas and permits to enter, and authorized healthcare professionals may still enter the country. Special allowances also exist in some cases for travelers arriving from Germany or Austria.

Entry requirements

Travelers must complete an entry form prior to entry to Switzerland. Travelers must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR or rapid antigen test result issued within 72 hours prior to arrival. Children under age 12 are exempt from the testing requirement.

Quarantine requirements

Travelers who have been in certain countries in the past 10 days are subject to quarantine for 10 days on arrival. The countries and areas affected are set down in the FOPH’s list of high-risk countries. All travelers arriving from the UK and South Africa are subject to a 10-day self-isolation, including those who arrived since December 14. Travelers who have arrived in Switzerland from December 14 onward, must be in quarantine in their place of residence or accommodation by midnight on December 22 at the latest, and must notify their local Cantonal Medical Service by 12 noon on December 24.

Transiting rules

Same-day transit is permitted; however, travelers who are not nationals, residents, or family members of nationals/residents of EEA Member States may not transit through Switzerland when arriving from a non-Schengen Member State en route to another Schengen Member State. Additional exemptions exist for some categories of business travelers who have received advance permission. Travelers transiting through Switzerland, are strongly advised to have their onward travel booked in advance and to have confirmed they meet the entry requirements of their destination country.

If you are looking to book a trip to Basel and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about traveling during COVID-19.

Civilized, beautiful and vibrant, Basel is one of Switzerland’s most appealing tourist destinations. Although less famous than Geneva or Zurich, Basel has a well-preserved medieval center and everything is close together in downtown Basel, making it one of the easiest cities to see by foot.

The crowning glory of the city is its fabulous medieval cathedral, the “Münster” which is surrounded by winding cobbled streets. See the intricate sculpture work around the doorways or climb one of the cathedral towers for stunning views over the town and the Rhine.

Basel is also a great place for river tours and you can charter boats or be piloted in leisurely fashion past the rolling fields and hills of the region. Special tour boats also offer two-hour trips which take in all of the city’s sights.

Another of Basel’s great attractions is the lively town market. Buy locally produced fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as Swiss delicacies like chocolate or cheese, as well as local craft products and Rhine wines.

The city also boasts some world-class museums. Head to the Art Museum to see a room stuffed with Picassos and a marvellous renaissance collection or visit the superbly designed Beyeler Foundation, which houses a collection of modern art. For the kids, the Jean Tinguely Museum features animated figures and cartoons, while the city zoo is the largest of its kind in Switzerland.

Basel also offers some unique attractions such as a subterranean sewer tour or taking a dip in the placid waters of the River Rhine. Then there are the city’s many vibrant festivals. Check out the Easter Carnival to see colourful costumes and musical delights and don’t miss the fire festival “Chienbäse” in the nearby town of Liestal.

Best Time to Fly to Basel

If you plan to mix a trip to Basel with a sampling of the Swiss ski slopes, then head over between December and March, when town accommodations will also be fairly cheap. Easter is a great time to visit Basel alone, with the excitement of carnival, but summer allows for more outdoor activities such as swimming in the Rhine and local vineyard tours.

Getting around Basel

The best way to see the Old Town is still by foot, but the city also has an extensive tram and bus network if the hills become too much. When walking, remember to look out for the trams, and be advised that tickets for the trams and buses need to be bought before boarding at the green ticket machines.
