Rules For Unvaccinated Travel To Switzerland

Last Checked & Updated: 15th June 2022

Eligibility to enter Switzerland

You are eligible to enter Switzerland for any travel purpose if you are fully vaccinated and have a negative PCR test no older than 3 days before boarding. All arrivals from the UK must report their arrival to the relevant cantonal office within 2 days and must complete a further test (antigen or PCR) after 4 to 7 days in Switzerland, and must send the result of the second test to the relevant cantonal office.

Travellers who are not fully vaccinated are only eligible to enter Switzerland from the UK if they are:

  • Swiss or Liechtenstein nationals;
  • EU or EFTA nationals;
  • holders of the following documents:
  • a residence permit, i.e. a Swiss residence permit;
  • a cross-border permit;
  • an FDFA legitimation card;
  • a D visa issued by Switzerland;
  • confirmation of notification for the cross-border provision of services up to 90 days;
  • holders of a ‘laissez passer’ issued by the Swiss Embassy in situations of special necessity

Travellers who are not fully vaccinated and do not meet one of the exemptions outlined above are not eligible to enter Switzerland.

Unvaccinated children and adolescents arriving from the UK under the age of 18 are allowed to enter Switzerland if they are accompanied by fully vaccinated adults.

All travellers must complete a passenger locator form.

Demonstrating your COVID-19 status

Switzerland will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 recovery and vaccination record. However a screenshot or a photo is not sufficient. If you are travelling with a printed PDF proof of vaccination status, it must date from 1 November to ensure that the certificate can be scanned successfully. 


Travellers entering Switzerland to transit on to another destination are required to show a negative PCR test before boarding a plane to Switzerland and on entry to Switzerland. Travellers transiting airside in Switzerland are not required to show a negative PCR test before boarding a plane to Switzerland, but may be required to show negative tests for their onward destination.
