Switzerland has lifted the majority of its measures put in place to contain the coronavirus pandemic.
Travellers from the UAE need not fill out entry forms, show a vaccine certificate, or provide a PCR test when entering Switzerland. Moreover, face masks do not need to be worn in public and when entering shops and restaurants.
The rules have been in effect from February 17. The same rules apply for most GCC countries, as well.
Those who test positive must still isolate, and masks should still be worn on public transport and in healthcare settings until the end of March.
Massimo Baggi, ambassador of Switzerland to the UAE and Bahrain said, “The move signals Switzerland’s return to normal as the Covid situation in the country develops positively, and the healthcare system is not deemed at risk of becoming overwhelmed.”
