Key Points

  • Current COVID-19 measures to remain in place until March 31, 2022
  • Reduced validity of the COVID-19 vaccination certificate


The government of Switzerland announced that current COVID-19 safety measures will remain in place until March 31, 2022. Eligible fully vaccinated travelers or those who have recovered from COVID-19 in the past six months will be required to:

  • Complete an entry form within 48 hours of arrival
  • Present a negative PCR COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours of departure or a rapid antigen test was taken within 24 hours of departure
  • Unvaccinated travelers will also be required to adhere to the requirements mentioned above and take an additional PCR or rapid antigen test between the fourth and seventh days following entry.

The government of Switzerland will also reduce the validity of the COVID-19 vaccination certificates to 270 days (9 months) on February 1, 2022. This change will ensure that the vaccination certificate remains valid for travel throughout the European Union, which will shorten the accepted vaccine validity in February 2022.

What are the Changes?

The government of Switzerland will maintain internal COVID-19 measures, reduce the quarantine period for international travelers and shorten the validity of COVID-19 vaccination certificates.
