Requirements for Entry into Switzerland from Malta



Vaccinated travellers visiting Switzerland may present a valid certificate showing that they have received the full dosage of a Covid-19 vaccine authorised for the EU by the European Medicines Agency. The certificate is considered valid for twelve months from the date when you are fully vaccinated. A certificate of recovery, proving that you have recovered from COVID-19 within the last 6 months, is also valid. Regardless of their vaccination or recovery status, all passengers aged 16 years and older are also required to present a pre-departure PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours or a rapid antigen test taken within the previous 24 hours. The requirement to take a second test upon arrival between day 4 and day 7 of a trip will be waived for persons who are fully vaccinated or have recovered from COVID-19.

If you are not fully vaccinated, you will be required to present a negative Covid-19 PCR result of a test taken within 72 hours of boarding, and between 4 and 7 days following your your arrival in the country, you will need to get another PCR test or rapid antigen test in Switzerland.

The result of tests taken in Switzerland must be reported to the cantonal authorities, whose contact details may be found here.



You will not be required to quarantine following your entry into Switzerland from Malta if you have not visited a country with a variant of concern in the 10 days prior to entering Switzerland. If you have visited one of the countries listed here, you must observe a period of self-quarantine. This also applies to people who have been vaccinated or have recovered from COVID.
