Coronavirus / COVID-19
For information related to the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) kindly consult the information and directives of the Public Health Agency of Sweden and the recommendations of the World Health Organisation WHO.
The Swiss Federal Office of Public Health FOPH informs with regard to the new Coronavirus and publishes recommendations for travelers accordingly.
1. Travelling to Switzerland
From 15 June 2020, border controls at all land and air borders between Switzerland and the other Schengen states have been lifted. Normal entry requirements apply again. Detailed information on this subject is published on the website of the Swiss State Secretariat for Migration SEM.
People arriving in Switzerland from countries and areas with a high risk of infection are required to go into quarantine. This list of these countries and areas is regularly updated and published on the website of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health FOPH.
Persons who entered Switzerland from Sweden between the 6 and 22 July 2020 are required to stay in quarantine for 10 days. The quarantine must be ended as ordered, since the date of entry was decisive and it can be assumed that the threat at that time was different from that at the time of the deletion of Sweden from the list on 23 July 2020.
Infoline of the FOPH for persons entering Switzerland: +41 58 464 44 88 (daily from 6am to 11pm).
