Entry to Switzerland- general information
Entry requirements: The regular entry requirements apply for people entering Switzerland from Taiwan.
Border sanitary measures: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic there are special rules for people entering Switzerland. Please refer to the information of the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH.
Everyone entering Switzerland must present a completed entry form (rare exceptions may apply, please refer to art. 3 of the COVID-19 Ordinance on International Passenger Transport). It is important to fill out the electronic entry form on a computer or smartphone at the earliest 48 hours before the travel in order to receive a QR code by email. This code needs to be kept at hand for inspection upon arrival in Switzerland. The controlling authority can impose a fine if the entry form is not completed or if the information provided is false.
To see what rules apply to your own particular situation when entering Switzerland, consult the online Travelcheck.
Under certain conditions, you could convert your vaccination certificate issued abroad into a Swiss COVID certificate by using the National COVID certificate application platform.
Entry to Taiwan
From 19 March 2020, all foreign nationals, including Swiss citizens, are banned from entering Taiwan. Only foreign nationals who hold a valid Taiwanese residence permit are allowed to enter Taiwan but are subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine. For further information consult the Bureau of Consular Affairs.
