Children below the age of 18 years do not need to be vaccinated.
The online Travelcheck enables you to get information on your personal situation when entering Switzerland.
Special rules apply for the stay in Switzerland. For information regarding the COVID certificate refer to: Coronavirus: where and how to get a COVID certificate and how long it is valid
Entry restrictions continue to apply to foreign nationals who are not vaccinated and are without rights of free movement, entering from risk countries or regions and who do not belong to any of the exceptional categories of the COVID-19 Regulation 3 (exceptional categories).
