The certificate requirement within Switzerland was lifted on 17 February 2022. For travel outside Switzerland, depending on the measures in place in the country in question, COVID certificates may still be required. For this reason, certificates are still being issued. The rules on validity in your destination country apply.
With the return to a normal situation, the authority to order potential measures is once again held by the cantons. This means it’s to your advantage to keep your COVID certificates somewhere safe.
