Hi! I'm trying to figure out if I need to get a Swiss and/or EU covid certificate/green pass. I have a US CDC card with proof of my covid vaccine, but it seems like that's only ok to use through October 24th? I'll be arriving in December
You need to apply for the Swiss Certificate. There is an online form. It is recommended to apply for the certificate 2 weeks before your trip and the application costs 30 CHF.
kirticxpjexkotkk awesome, thanks! It is a digital certificate right?
Yes, you get a digital certificate
You can install the โ€œCOVID Certificateโ€ app
Thanks so much!
aqybuphw here is the official site of the swiss ministry of health aka (the notorious) BAG, you can find all the information on that site:

I also advise you to prepare your travels with the travel check app, a five step form which results in an overview of all necessary documents.
Thanks so much!

Iโ€™m going to be working in Zurich for a week in early December. Any suggestions on best part of the city to stay?
I stayed in technopark which had some cheaper hotels than the rest of the city and was still very close to everything, one tram away, if you're splurging, city center close to the lake is better
Zurich is super easy to get around. I stayed in Adliswil which is a 20 minute direct train to the center
Any suggestions on the fastest, easiest way to for a US citizen to get a COVID test in Zurich that is compliant with US CDC regulations on returning travelers?
bgevmjnktoydj Zurich based local here (nomading in Budapest now). Best places to stay will mostly depends on what you want to do - I would recommend to stay in Wiedikon (plenty of bars, restaurants). Adliswil is super far away lol I would not recommend it, I don't know how you deal with it U0183BLMQ5N;-)br />
Otherwise Kreis 6 or around Wipkingen is also nice (Zurich is divided in "Kreis" or District). Feel free to DM me if you need some help. Always glad to help any nomads coming to ZH (it's so rare)
cjhysiseqfan Thanks, I may take you up on your offer.
easiest is to test at the airport. CHeckport is a Swissport (ground handler) subsidary they exactly know what test you need
How long for results U04CGSPHZ?
check website ๐Ÿ˜‰
depends on how much you pay.
or you can get a PCR at Zurich Main Station
Oh, nice.
That would be convenient.

Hiiii. I'm coming to Switzerland, currently through Lisbon. Portugal has been added to the list of countries of variant concern with need to quarantine. However, if I just transit through Portugal, I don't think I need to quarantine (according to Switzerland's travel check tool) --- but I can't find that on the website otherwise. Does anyone know?
I wouldnโ€™t trust the travel check tool - I doubt it has been updated for the โ€˜variant of concernโ€™ stuff (different from the โ€˜high riskโ€™ stuff)
yciyzwxmzbki it has. If you say you are staying in Portugal for more than 24 hours/not just for transit, you have to quarantine
oh ok
even after all this time the โ€˜swifficiencyโ€™ surprises me ๐Ÿ˜›
but yeah it is always hard to get confirmation - I flew from South Africa to Switzerland in February after confirming by phone with the health dept, the embassy, the airline, and the travel check tool that I would be allowed in
turned out I missed the migration dept, who wouldnโ€™t let me in ๐Ÿ™ƒ
the joys of decentralisation I guess
Oh wowwwww yikes!
but if youโ€™re already in Schengen it should be easier
probably just call the cantonal authority to confirm
I'm not...coming from the US, ideally through Lisbon, otherwise it will be like another $2K to book a new flight not through Portugal or another variant country...
It looks like the US is still/again on the list of countries where you canโ€™t enter Switzerland from:
sem.admin .ch/sem/de/home/sem/aktuell/faq-einreiseverweigerung.html#778152011
(sorry, it seems like i canโ€™t post links yet)
The list is a bit weird as it only lists the countries where you can enter from and it says all other countries are at risk countries.
wtklmvftmw giving me a heart attack over here. I have an EU passport
Sorry! EU passport seems fine.
brxjwpusil no worries, appreciate you trying to help. Believe me, I have spent a TON of time on these websites reading and re-reading (things keep changing! I was originally going to be coming from Munich. Sigh). I'm really just hoping I can still transit through Portugal, just not sure how to confirm...
Yeah, itโ€™s a bit complicatedโ€ฆ The Travelcheck writes that if you donโ€™t leave the transit area in Portugal it should be fine. But unfortunately i didnโ€™t see that written anywhere else. They have an infoline for incoming passengers though on the BAG website.
vyrrgzqtok Yeah that's what I see, too. Ohhhh thanks! I'll try the infoline ๐Ÿ™‚
lvzzmdml Good luck!
dipexyiuonh me too! If I can get into Switzerland lol. When will you be there?
All shall be well tpxxuhpj smiling_face_with_3_hearts
Aloha! Anyone in Geneva and want to meet up?
You made it ๐Ÿ™Œ

anyone know when Switzerland will update travel rules again? The rest of the Europe has dropped southern african ban now, but Switzerland just hasnโ€™t met yet? And was last updated on 20 Dec ๐Ÿ˜‘
strange i thought this ban has been lifted already. Probably travel to europe, stay 10 days there and then head to switzerland?
eh, Iโ€™d rather just fly to Switzerland and it seems super ambiguous if Iโ€™m allowed or now - the embassy says โ€œit is advised to fly to country of residence but ultimately up to the airlineโ€
they lifted the flight ban so the flights are going, but there is still โ€œemergency breakโ€ countries where youโ€™re not allowed in except in certain circumstances (citizen/residency being the main ones)
Has anyone a recommendation for a Swiss credit card provider with a good online dashboard that does not use SMS verification for login/payments?
Postfinance. 2nd factor is either their App or their (free) card reader where you put in your physical card to generate a token
They blacklisted me from when I was 16y/o and had a negative Saldo of 1.20 CHF
but thanks for the recommendation. I'll try to get one when I'm back home
I use viseca and it works well. It provided by my bank but they also provide the card directly. They have their own app for the two factor authentication.
Thanks wkivapmvzeyekspm will check viseca too!
Gotta love banks
