Swiss Government Drops Pre-Arrival Testing Requirement

J2SkiNews posted 20-Jan

From Saturday, 22 January, the Swiss Government has dropped its requirement that persons who have been vaccinated or who have recovered from COVID-19 to present evidence of a recent negative test on arrival at their border.

Currently arrivals have to show a negative PCR test dated within the previous three days or rapid antigen test dated within the previous 24 hours before entering Switzerland.

Switzerland is shortening the validity period of all vaccination certificates from 365 to 270 days from 31 January. This ensures that the Swiss certificate continues to be recognised in the EU.

Persons who are not vaccinated or who have not recovered from COVID-19 will still have to take the tests to enter the country. However, due to limited testing capacity, travellers will no longer be required to take follow-up tests four to seven days after arriving.

The Passenger Locator Form (PLF) will only have to be completed by those travelling to Switzerland by plane or on a long-distance bus service but apparently not by car or rail.
