Request a COVID-19 certificate



Have you already got an EU Digital COVID Certificate or a certificate that is compatible with the EU Digital COVID Certificate? If so, you don’t need to apply for a Swiss COVID certificate as these are also recognised in Switzerland. 



From September 13, 2021, the following precautionary measures apply:

Switzerland has an excellent health system. Covid-19 tests can be carried out in hospitals, medical practises, and pharmacies or directly at the airport.

  • The Travelcheck allows you to check whether and under what conditions you can enter Switzerland.
  • Here you can find various options if you require a PCR test for the return journey to your home country.
  • The opening times of stores, service providers, and institutions in Zurich vary. It is therefore advisable to contact the respective establishment in advance.
