SWITZERLAND APPROVES TOURIST ENTRY TO PASSENGERS FROM SERBIA since June 26, 2021


Since the epidemiological situation in Switzerland has improved significantly, the Federal Council has made a decision to relax the entry conditions for Switzerland. This ordinance is in force since 26th of June 2021.
According to this decision, citizens of the Republic of Serbia (who travel from Serbia) are allowed to enter Switzerland by plane if:

- they have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 6 months (11th day from the date of issuance of a positive PCR must be in the last 6 months)

- are vaccinated in the previous six months with one of the vaccines approved by Switzerland (Pfizer/ BioNTech,  Moderna, Johnson & Johnson), the European Medicines Agency – EMA (+ AstraZeneca) and/ or the WHO’s Emergency Use Listing (+ „Sinopharm“) and hold a valid certificate.

Citizens who travel by plane and have not contracted the coronavirus or have not been vaccinated with any of the above vaccines, must present a negative PCR or Antigen test and fill out the form before entering Switzerland https://swissplf.admin.ch/home,
Passengers who travel by bus or train and which don’t hold a COVID-19 certificate or haven’t contracted the coronavirus, must complete the Entry form https://swissplf.admin.ch/home,

There are no special entry conditions for all categories of our citizens who come to Switzerland by car from Serbia, so a negative PCR test is not required, nor is a completed form.

This also applies to the Principality of Liechtenstein.
