Travel to Switzerland
« on: Wednesday 25 August 21 15:22 BST (UK) »
Asking for a friend who wants to visit her son in Geneva.

As far as I can tell, from Swiss websites, UK/GB/England is classed as High-Risk - i.e. Swiss equivalent of a red-flag :o

Has anyone any experience of traveling into Switzerland, please?

What the UK says...

And what the Swiss say...

Accuracy?  No idea these change daily.

Switzerland has a "travel check" online tool. Answer the questions and it tells you whether you can enter Switzerland and any conditions of entry.

Thanks both.
I am aware that the advice from HM Government doesn't always match the advice from the other country ;D

HES flying to geneva from heathrow tomorrow because they think it will be easier to complete the journey into france by coach , rather than flying direct to france . He does tell me that there is so much conflicting advice , and if it wasn't for visiting an elderly relative he wouldn't bother .

Sorry about the keyboard trouble and lack of capital letters.

Travelling from Switzerland to France you need to be able to show your vaccination certificate (European format) or (I think!) negative PCR test. I live in France and can cross the Swiss border both ways with the scannable vaccination cert on my phone or its paper equivalent.
