The government of Switzerland has announced it will no
longer accept foreign Covid-19 certificates, including the UK’s NHS Covid-19
app, as proof of vaccination status for entry to events or facilities.
From 25 October, anyone accessing events or facilities that
require proof of Covid status must have a Swiss Covid certificate or an
EU Digital Covid Certificate.
The UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has
updated its travel advice, saying anyone who has been fully vaccinated outside
of Switzerland with a vaccine authorised by the European Medicines Agency –
including AstraZeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna and Janssen – or who has had a positive PCR test result abroad can obtain a
Swiss certificate online for a fee of 30 Swiss Francs for non-residents. It is
recommended visitors submit their application at least two weeks prior to their
arrival in Switzerland.
