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.
