Switzerland is relaxing entry restrictions as part of an easing
of Covid regulations in the country from 26 June.
The country’s Federal Council has announced that people entering
from the Schengen area will no longer be required to quarantine and the requirement
to be tested will now apply only to persons arriving by plane who have not been
vaccinated or have not recovered from Covid-19.
In addition, the country is easing the existing entry
restrictions for persons arriving from third countries, such as the USA, who
can prove they have been vaccinated.
People from high-risk countries where virus
variants of concern are circulating who have been vaccinated or who have
recovered from the disease will also be permitted to enter Switzerland without
having to be tested or to quarantine. This includes the UK and
The Federal Council is also
taking steps to adopt two regulations on the EU digital Covid certificate to have
the Swiss certificate recognised by the EU.
