Switzerland has allowed travelers with a Swiss passport or a valid residence permit in Switzerland to enter. Entry restriction may apply to all other people.
There are no longer any entry restrictions related to coronavirus for persons arriving from Schengen and EU countries or from the small European states Andorra, the Vatican/Holy See, Monaco and San Marino as well as certain third countries. The normal entry requirements apply to persons arriving from these states.
For all other third-country citizens traveling directly from a high-risk country, entry restrictions apply when they enter Switzerland, for example for a holiday, visit or other reason. Persons who do not have rights of free movement and do not hold a valid permit allowing them to live or work in Switzerland will not be permitted to enter Switzerland from a high-risk country for stays of less than 90 days that do not require authorization, other than in cases of special necessity. Entry rules can change very quickly depending on the epidemiological situation. Check FOPH’s list of high-risk countries for more details.
Travelers from the UK and South Africa are not permitted entry to Switzerland. UK nationals and other non-Swiss/Liechtenstein nationals arriving from a “high risk-country” outside of the Schengen area are not permitted entry to Liechtenstein. These restrictions do not apply to UK nationals who are legally resident in Switzerland. They will be allowed to re-enter the country, but will need to present proof of residency, i.e. a Swiss residence permit (L / B / C / Ci permits). Holders of a cross-border permit (G permit), an FDFA legitimation card, a D visa issued by Switzerland and holders of a ‘laissez passer’ issued by a Swiss representation in cases of ‘individual special necessity’ may also enter the country.
Travelers from other countries who have the necessary visas and permits to enter, and authorized healthcare professionals may still enter the country.
Special allowances also exist in some cases for travelers arriving from Germany or Austria.
Travelers must complete an entry form prior to entry to Switzerland.
Travelers must present a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR or rapid antigen test result issued within 72 hours prior to arrival. Children under age 12 are exempt from the testing requirement.
Travelers who have been in certain countries in the past 10 days are subject to quarantine for 10 days on arrival. The countries and areas affected are set down in the FOPH’s list of high-risk countries. All travelers arriving from the UK and South Africa are subject to a 10-day self-isolation, including those who arrived since December 14. Travelers who have arrived in Switzerland from December 14 onward, must be in quarantine in their place of residence or accommodation by midnight on December 22 at the latest, and must notify their local Cantonal Medical Service by 12 noon on December 24.
Same-day transit is permitted; however, travelers who are not nationals, residents, or family members of nationals/residents of EEA Member States may not transit through Switzerland when arriving from a non-Schengen Member State en route to another Schengen Member State. Additional exemptions exist for some categories of business travelers who have received advance permission.
Travelers transiting through Switzerland, are strongly advised to have their onward travel booked in advance and to have confirmed they meet the entry requirements of their destination country.

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."

Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."

Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."
Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."
Pros: "Nothing to mention"
Cons: "Crew was rude when I asked if there was a vegetarian option for the snack. I did request special meals for the trip. Even if they did not have a vegetarian option, they don't need to be rude!! Boarding was ridiculous. we were supposed to form a line and wait. Would have been a lot better if they boarded by seat numbers. Also they made me check in my fairly small and light carry on bag resulting in its contents arriving broken!"
Pros: "Very pleasant, professional crew"
Cons: "Very slow check in. Mainly because other passengers obviously don't read instructions re: weight/contents of cabin bags etc. Would be helpful if there was additional staff to deal with them away from check in desk. This would mean that others did not have to queue for 25 minutes because the check in girls also had to deal with them"
Cons: "Our lougage did not arrive"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "The flight to Gdansk took off and arrived on-time and the staff were professional."

Cons: "Would have preferred boarding by row - back of the flight first so would have been more organized."
Cons: "The cabin crew was racist! She asked me to move from a seat because she wanted another guy ( obviously from her country ) to take it! Rude and racist."
Pros: "Arrived Early!"
Cons: "Left Late :-)"
Cons: "Delay can occur sometimes but it wiuld be better to be explained its reason and the estimated time for boarding. The customer service at CDG airport was the worst ever and all people standing boarding desk were useless without any mind what they are doing."
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Cons: "Did not get the luggage from connecting flight from Amsterdan to Basel"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "We really liked the KLM people, from the check in crew to the flight attendants."
Pros: "I liked the leg room, I liked the customer service of the crew, smooth flight."
Cons: "Both ways up and down I struggled with over-head luggage space. We were allowed a cabin bag and a small hand-bag in the flight but as we were among the last half of the passengers to board the flight we couldn't find anywhere to keep our luggage and the crew had to take them away from us to store them somewhere at the back far away from our seats. As a result we had to wait until all the passengers got off the plane to get back our luggage and we were the last two passengers to get off. Unpleasant!"
Cons: "Our flight from Nairobi to Lusaka was cancelled for some reason and we did not find out until we happened to log into the website to double check our itinerary. They automatically rescheduled the flight only giving us 25 minutes to reach our next flight...impossible. so, after calling, we were re-booked again and forced into a 13 hour layover in Amsterdam. Our original flight plan had 4 hours. so, because we are a family of 7 with a baby, we had to buy a hotel room to rest, costing us a lot of extra money we had not planned to spend. We contacted KLM for help with the cost but were rejected. We also lost 5 bags somewhere between Chicago and Lusaka, but after 2 days, we received them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours. was not able to make connecting flight in Amsterdam. No flights from Amsterdam to final destination in the US. Lost one full day. Had to stay overnight. What a cluster mess. Will never fly with KLM airlines and would not recommend. Will spend a little extra money and fly on other airlines......very poor, disorganized, and horrendous flight experience. Buyer beware."
Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."
Pros: "Services were appropriate for the time of departure and length of the flight."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Staff very nice, plane clean and nice food"
Pros: "Flight all good"

Cons: "Usual complaints - chaos boarding and deplaning, poor entertainment options for free, headset not working. Had to deplane by stairs - we were parked next to an unused jetway."
Cons: "Flight was so delayed that we missed our connection"
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Cons: "Crew service; food and general customer service"
Pros: "Free reschedule of flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled for no reason."
Cons: "Plane was delayed for 1 hour, electrical problems, which were never fixed. No entertainment no wifi, unable to charge battery on cell phone. Cabin very warm."
Cons: "The plane was very old. It had cigarette ash tray in the armrests and bathrooms. It also only had three screens to watch movies. The headphone jack did not work properly and you could not hear the movie well. There were no screens in the chairs in front."
Pros: "The ground crew were very courteous but I feel they were not being completely honest regarding the delays. It felt like we were being given false hope that the flight was taking off soon."
Cons: "We were boarded thinking we were taking off soon. Except the delay continued for another hour and a half I found out. I had exited the plane having been given the option of staying in Gainesville in a hotel provided by the airline and being booked on a flight the next day."
Pros: "It was a red eye. So good to be seated, quiet. not too crowded."
Cons: "It was really GOOD overall."
Pros: "The same answers apply as did the flight from Richmond to Miami."
Cons: "Same answers apply as the flight from Richmond to Miami."
Pros: "Kept us waiting at gate for 5 hours, the boarded us, then canceled flight and asked us to deplane. Only gave one meal voucher for two days."
Cons: "After 2 hours of delay, cancel the flight and allow people to get sleep and give vouchers for 3 square meals as appropriate."
Cons: "Ticket agent was rude and 3 flights later found a super sweet ticket agent but 10 hours longer to get to my destination"
Cons: "no individual tv’s. The best was the food, noquis were excellent"
Pros: "The crew at the check in counter were very help and just outright awesome. Having missed my flight they were kind enough to find a seat for me on another flight. So I say Weldone to them"
Cons: "As I am tall the seats especially the middle seat was a nightmare espcially when people pullback their seats back. need more space to stretch your legs on long flights"
Cons: "Horrible food"
Pros: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and on time departure."
Cons: "Same is last."
Pros: "Nothing. Just the pilot"
Cons: "Everything. Bad communication. 1 h delay. Then 3 hs in the plane. We ran out of gas. 2 more hours taxiing Never seen something similar. I really hope my mileage refund."
Cons: "Never flying again with this company"
Pros: "The flight attendants were really attentive and came to our rescue. In flight entertainment was good."
Cons: "Americans airlines charged me extra to guarantee that my wife and I, along with our infant daughter could sit together. Of course with this came the expectation that we would at least have more leg space. Which we did not. Go figure."
Pros: "The seats were comfy and spacious."
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Cons: "The captain had the crew return to their seats during drink service due to turbulence. Despite the fact that there was 2 and half hours remaining in the flight and the turbulence was gone, they never returned to complete the drink service."
Cons: "Well because of some dumb delay we missed our connection allowing us to be given new tickets for two more connecting flights. Which is absurd."
Cons: "Surprise no carry on bag. I missed my flight because of their policy changed policy"
Pros: "Comfortable and food was great So was the service"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "It was a fabulous ride, with personal entertainment centers, fast service -"
Cons: "unfortunately just one exit , so took forever to exit the plane but otherwise great."
Cons: "I'm not a large man. I shouldn't need to fold my arms to keep from bumping into and intruding on my neighbors."
Pros: "The staff were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "When I called the emergency number, I was put on hold and charge by my wireless carrier for international call and no one answered the call."
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "Wide selection of movies and other entertainment."
Cons: "This was not food that was served in the Economy class. This was pure junk. I understand that airlines are saving on the service in Economy but a minimal quality should be maintained. I recommend to prepare some sandwich etc. and other snacks and to take it on the plane."
Pros: "Good flight, helpful staff and friendly crew. There was a flight delay out of Iquitos due to fog, causing us to miss our next connection in Lima to Cusco but the staff in Iquitos made sure we got on the next plane with new tickets and luggage transferred to the right plane. Naturally, we were disappointed with several hours of delay due to safety but were pleased with the service in resolving our concerns. There was no entertainment available on this trip ever through there was a screen for each seat."
Cons: "Your partner vayama doesn't provide the terminal or airline. Went to Iberia/ terminal 7 just to realize it was AA/terminal 8."
Cons: "They were not honest with the information given by stewardesses"
Pros: "Since chek-in gate number changed two times. Outdated airplane especially for international flight. In flight meal could be better. Compare with other US airlines AA needs serious improvements in customer service."
Pros: "I understand that the breakfast cookies are economical, and many people enjoy them, but can we add some variety or switch things up sometime, pleeeeease. My kids love the cookies. thanks Jesse"
Cons: "The cookies"
Pros: "Boarded quickly. Seats were comfortable. Friendly flight attendants. It was a quick flight, no entertainment used. Only had a cookie and water for food. Don't know about the other things."
Pros: "Again, it seemed to me there was more legroom in first class than on similar Delta flights - meaning it was more comfortable. Also, there was a delay of a couple of hours leaving Dallas due to a problem with the plane's radio, and the American employees handled it very well, keeping the passengers informed and smoothly transferring everyone to a substitute plane."
Cons: "Crew member had poor attitude. Not all just one seem to be having a bad day"
Pros: "Didn't realize till half way through the trip, but it was possible to view free movies via my iPad mini on Gogo Entertainment app. That entertained my rest of the trip!"
Cons: "No outlet found around seats, so I couldn't recharge my devices during the trip."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly and helpful staff especially flight attendant on EWN/CLT flight. She was great and extremely helpful."
Pros: "the wine was good"
Cons: "the tv"
Cons: "The flight was late due to flight attendants coming from another plane! American Airlines is a billion dollar company; they should have had flight attendants on stand-bye. Then we had to wait an hour just to get out luggage..."
Cons: "Everyone excellent"
Cons: "Cancelled, had to stay in Dallas until next day"
Pros: "The entertainment, the crew were very hospitable. The flight was on time"
Pros: "The pre recorded safety instructions. Very friendly crew, they really worked hard the entire flight."
Cons: "Small seats really put my back into a bind. All I wanted to do was sleep and I couldn't because of the pain. It took forever to board the aircraft on top of being delayed over an hour."
Pros: "Not much of anything. No complimentary food or drink for a nearly five hour flight, and sub- par customer service."
Cons: "The check in agents with Iberia airlines in Porto were rude, the. told me only when I arrived that I could not carry on “camping backpacks”, so I would have to check it for an additional 40 euro to check it.. despite saying they’d be happy to check “carry on” free of charge.. I’ve never had a problem with my backpack before, and it fits well within the size restrictions and easily fits in the overhead.. then they were unable to transfer my bag that I payed 40 euro to check, to my connecting flight. Therefore I had to wait two days to receive my luggage at my final destination in Rome.. Overall a really mediocre and frustrating experience."
Cons: "more space and be able to recline"
Cons: "Lost luggage. Took one hour waiting for my luggage in vain, and file the report of missing luggage."
Cons: "Awful experience, we're travelling with a Toddler and they didn't have any consideration at all...the staff always with a bad attitude"
Cons: "Don’t delay flights that messed my return"
Pros: "I notified the crew that I would have a very short time upon arrival in Madrid to catch my connecting flight to Santiago. They transferred me to a seat close to the front so I could disembark faster. That allowed me to reach the gate as the boarding began."
Cons: "The company handling the check-in for Iberia is inept. The line reserved for baggage drop-off was used to prioritize check-in for a large group, making the benefit of online check-in meaningless! Also, the supervisor who intervened on my check-in issue lacked basic customer service skills!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Free wifi for economy class"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "The seats are awful."
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Cons: "The space between seats was just microscopic. I’m 6ft tall and I really had a bad time in those 2h30, all twisted and unconfortable."
Cons: "The flight to Madrid from Porto left so late I missed my connecting flight to Bilbao and I so I took a bus to my destination."
Pros: "Iberia is awesome, they are so nice and accomodating, I appreciate the time that they spent making me feel comfortable. The food was awesome!"
Pros: "Finally arriving in Spain."
Cons: "The seats are extremely small cramped and I had to sit with my legs in the aisle. The flight attendants didn’t care about seat assignments so they put people wherever they wanted, causing issues when those people were in others seats. No in flight entertainment (zero stars). No complimentary snacks; had to pay for everything. Decent selection of food. The entry attendants were inconsistent with hand luggage size and took my correctly size soft bag to check but allowed larger hard luggage on the plane."
Cons: "All the luggage did not arrive I hope to get it. Also when"
Cons: "There is not enough space for my legs and specially when the passenger in front move the seat"
Cons: "A cup of water given anywhere else for free was not provided. There was no entertainment. The plane was old and seats very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I was not able to check in online"

Cons: "Lack of water, food, attentiiveness, leg room, wife's lost luggage"

Cons: "No frills flight. You have to pay for snacks and drinks."
Pros: "Very short flight."
Cons: "The stop in San Salvador is very disorganized."
Cons: "the portion Tel Avivi Madrid was very poor. The plane was very old the business clase very bad. The seats were very old No space for the foots and NO entreatments service available. This in a five hours flights, Just horrible."
Cons: "Iberia allows kids to abuse other passengers. I asked a flight attendant to stop this abuse after I was bumped in head a number of times by a kid that was jumping across a row a seats in front of mine ,the flight attendant told me that I should tolerate this abuse because it was from a kid,then proceeded to tell me that if I did not want to go throughout this abuse ,I should fly in a private plane. I felt irate at such response from a flight attendant and responded that I will never fly Iberia again. I wanted the attendant to talk to the parents and ask them to control their kid from abusing the adjacent passengers.I felt the impulse to talk to the crew chief but decided against it simply because I would do them a favor if they listened. Truthfully I think carriers with such attitudes deserve to go bankrupt and I hope they do."
Cons: "Madrid to Tampa... Got the nursery. Lots of crying babies... must be immigrating to the US. Why don't they put all people with babies at the rear so the rest of us can nap? Not IB's fault, the customs at Miami came to a halt for an hour. 2000 people standing in line, missing connections. There was a shift change, most employees didn't show up for work. was told 'It's a special day'. Fortunately I was at the head of the line. A few of us were routed to someone who was surprised to see US citizens. As a consequence, the always slow MIA failed to transfer my luggage. Still waiting for it... Air travel is such a pain these days. I'm sure more would fly if it wasn't such a hassle."
Pros: "The discomfort of the cramped seating overshadows everything"
Cons: "This was the 3rd time I had to take Iberia coach in Europe in 4 week. As horrible as the first 2 times. The rows are too close to each other. I can not sit straight. My knees hit the seat in front of me. I was not the only one measuring more than 6 feet. Other men equally were obliged to sit sort of diagonally. It a real torture. Horrible. Never again."
Pros: "Flights were punctual. Lots of room."
Cons: "Food and drink wasn't included but available for purchase."
Cons: "Had seat assignments, but the assignments were not honored at the airport, even though had paid external for early seat assignment."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"

Pros: "The crew was awesome and very helpful. The trip was also comfortable as it could be for a full flight."
Cons: "I am a vegetarian, I was not made aware of food options and was only offered chicken or beef, which I do not eat."
Pros: "On the plane, the trip was fine. The trans-atlantic section of the flight was surprisingly spacious."
Cons: "The connection was too short in Madrid, so I missed my flight to Berlin and was stuck in the airport for 11 hours. No airport lounge. Kind of a drag after a 9 hour flight. Also they said that my luggage would already be in Berlin but it was not and now I am still trying to find it. Yikes!"
Pros: "Vivo en Madrid. Estuve de vacaciones en Venecia."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "We had paid for reserved seats. When we got to the gate they were not there. Got bad seats to fly six hours. Left an item on the plane. No help tracking it down. No one would give us a phone number or how to go about locating it."
Pros: "The senior flight attendant was responsive."
Cons: "I paid for 2 tickets and 2 seats. My friend was ill but I didn't cancel her seat. I was not given the paid for aisle seat. I was given the middle seat and a last minute person was given my seat!"
Pros: "Seat location"
Cons: "Staff was slow. Dirty food tray left at seat for over an hour. Food was terrible"
Pros: "Flight was early to Madrid (i.e. shorter duration than planned)."
Cons: "Not enough discipline in the boarding process. No enforcement of the carry-on luggage policy. People were bringing on 3-4 small bags and taking all of the overhead space."
Pros: "Extremely professional, capable, friendly staff. Very good food. Great selection of films. Comfortable seating."
Pros: "On time, no hassles. The flight went well."
Cons: "Didn't have any non meat food available on Good Friday. Apparently, the airline ran out."
Pros: "On-time with excellent service. Clean."
Cons: "TV/movie screen was not working."
Cons: "No food and no water"
Pros: "My husband has trouble on planes due to his health. This flight was the most comfortable we have been on. My husband slept on the plane for the first time. We travel to Europe once a year and will be looking for this flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "The food could be better"
Pros: "The dood was decent (rice and chicken instead of a sandwich). Entertaiment was great, we had more than 20movies to choose from."
Cons: "The only bad thing was the weather. Ee ended up arriving 1hr later due to heavy rain, but then at the airport you could hear Iberia employees calling passengers with connections to speed up their process."
Cons: "The seat did not recline, a bit ridiculous for a plane that size"
Cons: "Everything was great! It is quite a contrast with the customer service over the phone, which service was not very kind all the times. I was afraid the flight service was going to be bad, just for the way some employees were while trying to talk to them over the phone. Your flight crew and service is absolutely different, I would say that is outstanding. :)"
Pros: "Promptness of flight. Comfortable seating. Excellent food and service."
Cons: "Personal entertainment unit did not work, making for a very long flight."
