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.
In addition to this, the cantons also have the authority to order measures (such as a certificate requirement) within their canton to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. This means it’s to your advantage to keep your COVID certificates somewhere safe.
From 2 May 2022 you can apply for a recovery certificate after a positive rapid antigen test. You can also obtain a COVID certificate retroactively if your test was done after 1 October 2021. The newly issued COVID certificates are EU-compatible and thus also recognised outside Switzerland.
Have you had a COVID-19 vaccination, had and recovered from the disease or tested negative (with a PCR test)? If so, you are able to request a COVID certificate on paper or in digital form in all cantons. The COVID certificate can be transferred to the COVID Certificate app.
You’ll find the latest information on the COVID certificate in the information flyer and below.
