Switzerland entry restrictions

Switzerland entry restrictions lifted for travellers 

Travellers from all countries will soon be able to enter Switzerland without having to follow any COVID-19 rules as the latter will drop all of its measures on May 2. Starting from May 2, all travellers, regardless of their country of origin, will be permitted restriction-free entry to Switzerland.

“The entry restrictions currently in place will be lifted from May 2. As of that date, the usual rules for entering Switzerland will apply,” the statement of the State Secretariat for Migration said. Currently, all travellers are required to hold a valid vaccination or recovery certificate in order to be permitted restriction-free entry to Switzerland.

However, as soon as the new entry rules start applying, travellers will no longer be required to hold a valid vaccination or recovery certificate. The Swiss authorities have explained that from May 2, travellers will only be required to follow the other rules, such as holding a valid passport or visa, if such a requirement applies to them.
