Entry into Switzerland from Monday 20 September 2021

  1.  A COVID certificate is now required to enter Switzerland. The rule applies regardless of the means of transport used to enter Switzerland. Unvaccinated travellers must therefore take a negative test with them when crossing the border and present it during controls.
  2. The completion of an entry form, which was previously only required for entry by air, is now again compulsory for all persons entering Switzerland, regardless of vaccination status, country of origin and means of transport. All contact details are recorded on an electronic registration form:
  3. They are exempt from the obligation to complete the test and the form: Persons crossing Switzerland non-stop; persons transporting goods or persons in a professional capacity, as well as cross-border commuters. Children under 16 are also exempt from the test requirement.

Effects of the new regulations on transport companies:

The control of compliance with the entry regulations is not the responsibility of the TU. Exceptions are air carriers and bus companies for long-distance travel. These must check their passengers' COVID certificates and entry forms before departure. 
The Federal Customs Administration (FCA) and the locally competent police units carry out risk-based checks in all cross-border modes of transport.
Cross-border deployment of staff

Staff who transport passengers or goods across borders as part of their professional activity are exempt from these provisions (see Art. 9a of the Ordinance).
Information for customers

Information to customers (e.g. announcements, website information, online timetable, etc.) must be provided by the TU.
TUs must also be able to provide customers with a paper enrolment form if requested and prior to enrolment.

If a 'missing' certificate or enrolment form is found during a random check, a fine may be imposed.

So we protect ourselves on public transport

Protection measures change according to the referred national territory
