Travel to Switzerland

If you are travelling to Switzerland, you may be required to undergo self-quarantine on arrival.

Quarantine

Travellers entering Switzerland from certain countries will have to go into quarantine for 10 days. Travellers affected will be notified during the flight, on board coaches and at border crossings.

A negative test result does not exempt passengers from the mandatory quarantine requirement.
