Travellers from EU/EFTA countries
Access to all indoor spaces with existing COVID certificates is possible without any problems.
Travellers from other countries – outside the EU/EFTA
(Vaccinated with a vaccine recognised by the EMA, i.e. Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen/Johnson&Johnson, AstraZeneca and all licences such as Covishield, etc.)
Until 10th October 2021, all readable certificates that include the following data: personal information, type of vaccine, country and date of vaccination, in one of the Swiss national languages, in English or in Spanish, will be accepted for access to all indoor areas.
This is a temporary solution to prepare for the conversion process. Then the certificates will have to be converted into a Swiss certificate. The details of this processare being worked out at a federal and cantonal level. Information will follow in due course.
Travellers from non-EU/EFTA countries vaccinated with other vaccines
These vaccinations do not currently give access to domestic areas, and there is currently no possibility to convert these certificates. The possibilities for travellers vaccinated with these other vaccines are: room service, meals on terraces, and testing.
