Travelling to Switzerland
Effective May 2, 2022, the Swiss government discontinued its high-risk countries list, meaning that:
- Entry into Switzerland from all countries in the world is possible again as before the pandemic.
- No COVID related entry regulations (e.g. No vaccination, No Passenger Locator Form, No pre-arrival testing) will be enforced by the Swiss government.
- No COVID related measures within Switzerland (e.g. No mask mandate, No Swiss COVID certificate).
- Wearing of masks in public transportation and crowded places is not mandatory but recommended.
- Important: Before traveling, please also refer to your local government for the current travel guidelines that are in place.

Clean and safe
The Swiss tourism industry had launched a ‘Clean & Safe’ campaign back in 2020. A Switzerland Tourism initiative that is part of its ‘Recovery Plan’, the campaign consists of an information platform and a ‘Clean & Safe’ label, which signifies to guests that the tourism service providers have made a conscious commitment to comply with the protection guidelines.
The campaign aims to strengthen guests’ confidence when travelling around Switzerland, while assuring them that Switzerland is indeed a safe and clean destination. More details and insights into the concrete measures taken can be found on here.
