Since July 6, regardless of these entry restrictions, any person arriving in Switzerland from a country or region at risk must self-quarantine for ten days.


In principle, nationals of countries outside the Schengen area are no longer allowed to enter Switzerland, with the exception of those from twenty countries. The ban issued by the Federal Department of Justice and Police (DFJP) applies to 160 countries as of Sunday.

Nationals of Andorra, Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, South Korea, Croatia, Georgia, Ireland, Japan, Monaco, New Zealand, Romania, Rwanda , San Marino, Thailand, Tunisia, Uruguay and the Vatican can enter Switzerland under the same conditions as before the coronavirus crisis. They may however be subject to quarantine.

All non-Schengen states, including Morocco which benefited from an exception, are on the list of countries at risk of the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM). For nationals of these countries, entry will in principle be refused from Sunday.

Risky trips

Since July 6, 2020, regardless of these entry restrictions, anyone arriving in Switzerland from a country or region with a high infection rate must self-quarantine for ten days. The list of these countries is kept by the Federal Office of Public Health (OFSP).

Since last Saturday 46 countries and regions are on the risk list. Switzerland added Spain, with the exception of the Balearics and Canaries, Bahamas, Equatorial Guinea, Romania, Sao Tome and Principe, Singapore and Sint Maarten. It withdrew Azerbaijan, the United Arab Emirates and Russia.
