Documents
Entry Form - Travelers, including those in transit, must fill up an entry form before entering Switzerland. The form can be completed 48 hours before entry at the earliest. Children can be included in the form of an adult traveling with them.

Health Pass For Public Activity - Travelers aged 16 years and older must have proof of vaccination, recovery, or a negative test for COVID-19 in order to enter events, festivals, bars, restaurants, museums, and other venues and activities in Switzerland.

If you have been vaccinated, you can either show a Swiss COVID Certificate, EU Digital COVID Certificate, or a certificate that is compatible with the EU Digital Covid Certificate. Travelers who have been vaccinated abroad with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and who are resident in or traveling to Switzerland are able to obtain a Swiss COVID certificate. This means that travelers who have been vaccinated abroad or have recovered abroad, such as tourists, can also participate in social activities in Switzerland. The documents can be submitted electronically.

You will be issued with the COVID certificate on the application on paper or as a PDF document with a QR code. With the COVID Certificate app, you can host your COVID certificate on your mobile device.

If you are unvaccinated, you must have a test, and if the result is negative you can then be issued with a COVID certificate. Your personal details on the COVID certificate should correspond with those in your passport or on your ID card.

Only travelers with a valid vaccination and recovery certificate are able to go inside restaurants, cultural, sporting, and leisure venues and attend indoor events (2G). To provide additional protection, masks must also be worn in these settings, and food and drink may only be consumed while seated.

In settings where masks cannot be worn, such as brass band practice, or where it is not possible to eat or drink while seated, such as at bars and discos, admission will be limited to vaccinated or recovered persons who also present a negative COVID-19 test result (2G+). People who within the last 4 months have been fully vaccinated received a booster, or recovered from COVID-19 do not have to take a further test.

Visitor Visa - To visit Switzerland for Business or Tourism, you require a visa.

A paper or embassy visa is the only type of visa available for visitors. Typically the visa is a stamp or sticker added to your passport. You must submit your application through the consulate or local visa center.
