COVID Restrictions

View COVID Travel Restrictions for Switzerland

Can I fly to Switzerland right now?

There are current restrictions for travel to Switzerland at this time. These restrictions are for the safety of Switzerland citizens and travelers alike and are as follows: 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 must travel during this time and are allowed to based on current restrictions, please stay informed about updated travel safety tips.

Best Time to Fly to Switzerland

Peak season:

Switzerland is a year-round destination. Spring, summer and autumn are all good times to fly to Switzerland as temperatures are comfortable. In June and July, the alpine wildflowers are in bloom. Skiers will enjoy the winter months. The downhill ski season runs from mid-December to late March. At higher altitudes, it can last beyond March. At Zermatt (the resort that sits in the shadow of the mighty Matterhorn) and Saas Fee for example, there is year-round skiing on the glaciers.

If you want to travel to Switzerland for its celebrations, particularly Swiss National Day, book Switzerland flights for August 1. This is when people gather around bonfires to listen to speeches about the independence of Switzerland. There are also fireworks, parades, music (especially accordions) and at Neuhausen am Rheinfall in Schaffhouse, the Rhine waterfalls are illuminated.

Off season:

There is no bad time to travel to Switzerland but May is a good month to visit to escape most of the tourists. If you plan your Switzerland trip in advance, it’s likely you’ll find cheap flights to Switzerland and discounted hotel fares.

Getting around Switzerland

Public transportation is excellent. Comprehensive and punctual, reasonably priced and clean, getting around by public transport is a tourist’s dream. Swiss Federal Railways operates rail services throughout Switzerland. Two of the largest Alpine lines are BLS, which runs the Bern–Lötschberg–Simplon route between the Swiss capital and Italy; and RhB, the Rhatische Bahn, which operates services within Canton Graubünden. Buses complement the train services and stations are generally found in the forecourts of train stations. Many cities also have trams.

There are ferry services operating on Switzerland’s largest lakes including Luzern’s Vierwaldstattersee, Lago di Lugano, Maggiore and Como. Ferry services are generally seasonal, between April and October.

The post bus is a novel way of getting to the remotest parts of Switzerland. The service has been operating for 100 years. One of the most scenic mountain/valley journeys runs from Meiringen over four alpine passes – Grimsel Pass 7,100 feet), Nufenen Pass (8,130 feet), Gotthard Pass (6,800 feet) and Susten Pass (7,047 feet). There are 25 bridges and 23 tunnels along this route.

There are many ways of getting to the top of the mountains. These include funicular, cable-car, gondola, T-bar skilift or draglift.

SWISS, the flag carrier, flies domestically between Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lugano and Zurich.

Switzerland Travel Information

  • The northeast of Switzerland (near Germany) is less well-known than the rest of the country. The city of St. Gallen, an old textile town, has a beautiful baroque cathedral and a well-preserved medieval town center. The city is the gateway to Lake Constance and the mountainous Appenzell region.
  • It’s possible to trace the footsteps of Heidi, the heroine of Johanna Spyri’s classic book in Maienfeld, Eastern Switzerland. In Heidi’s Village there is Heidi’s house, which can be toured, a petting zoo, shop and post office. There is also a Heidi trail from the village to the mountain which takes about 90 minutes.
  • The Glacier Garden in Lucerne is a natural monument with glacial potholes and fossilized shells and palm leaves that date back 20 million years. There are several attractions here, the most famous of which is the Lion monument carved out of rock. It was carved out of the cliff in the 1800s to commemorate the deaths of 700 Swiss guards who were cut down by French revolutionaries storming the Tuilleries in Paris in 1792. There are also botanical gardens and a Hall of Mirrors.
  • While many travelers opt for Zurich hotels or hotels in Geneva, during their Switzerland travels, St. Moritz, Davos and Zermatt are the most famous ski resorts, and Zermatt hotels are packed with snowbirds each season. Other popular resorts include Verbier, Klosters, Gstaad, Wengen, Grindelwald, Arosa and Murren.
  • Rheinfalls is the largest waterfall in Europe. It is a 30-minute drive or hour train journey from Zurich. There is a platform that extends over the water so it’s possible to get very close to the falls. There are a couple of boat trips you can take too. One drops tourists in the middle of the falls and picks them up later, the other motors to the foot of the waterfalls, cuts its engines and the water pushes it away.
  • Free bicycle: leave a small deposit at the Velogate, and a bike is yours for six hours.
  • The Kunsthaus in Zurich boasts treasures of the art world such as Picasso, Munch, Monet and Chagall topping the bill.
