Switzerland Opens Borders for UK Tourists

The government of Switzerland has announced that tourists from the UK will be allowed to enter Switzerland without having to quarantine if they can show proof of being fully vaccinated from June 26. The same rule applies to the U.S. and many other important source markets for the Swiss tourism industry. For travel within the EU/Schengen there will be no more restrictions. Proven safety concepts are in place to facilitate an enjoyable yet safe holiday experience.

The desire to travel is increasing at a steady pace and many are now planning their trips for the summer and autumn. The Swiss government stated that it is adhering to the opening strategy of the EU/Schengen area, and will open the country’s borders to vaccinated travelers from 26 June, just in time for summer and autumn holidays. With the UK as the second most important European source market for Switzerland, this step is very much welcomed by the Swiss tourism industry.

UK residents who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from Covid will be allowed to enter without quarantine. This will make Switzerland easily accessible to UK tourists and should make it again a popular destination this summer. Guests appreciate – especially after the pandemic – Switzerland’s reliability, cleanliness, safety and pure nature.

Proven safety concepts.
Over the last 12 months, rigorous safety concepts have proven extremely efficient and ensured that there was no outbreak at any tourist destination in Switzerland, despite the fact that most hotels, hotel restaurants and mountain resorts were open.

Over 4,000 tourism businesses earned the Swiss “Clean&Safe” label to document the application of comprehensive safety concepts. Guests can get information on the current various protection concepts on the corresponding website and, thus, know with maximum transparency which measures have been implemented to guarantee their protection and mutual safety.
