Coronavirus And The Situation In Switzerland

Latest news on holidaying in Switzerland

 

Covid-19 - Switzerland holidays resume

For travellers from EnglandWalesScotland and Northern Ireland who have had two vaccines more than 14 days before travel, the following requirements apply: 

  • Complete passenger locator forms
  • Show vaccination status
  • Take an authorised pre-return test in resort, in the 3 days before your return journey. The majority of our hotels are able to help you book this locally. 
  • Take a pre-booked PCR test within 2 days of return to the UK

There will no longer be a requirement for quarantine upon return, or for a test on day 8.

Switzerland do not require a negative test on entry, or quarantine, for double vaccinated passengers from the UK.

If you have not had two vaccines - or received them outside of the UK, Europe or USA - different rules will apply. Please note that while we will certainly assist wherever possible, it is your responsibility to ensure that all procedures are followed according to your personal situation. Please use the relevant country links above for your government's website to find details on how to show vaccine status and to book tests. We would also recommend allowing more time at airports. 

So, it seems that we will no longer have to resist the call of the beautiful lakes and mountains of Switzerland! And if you would prefer to book for 2022, we are ready to help you with your plans for a perfect Swiss holiday. Please take a look at our 2022 information or send us your requirements for a personalised quotation.
