Current travel restrictions at the border triangle

EuroAirport is still in operation. But travel is severely restricted by the official measures adopted to contain the further spread of the coronavirus. The airport remains open for cargo flights transporting vital goods in and out of our region, and for medical and other important flights.

On 19 March 2020, the EU reintroduced border controls at the external Schengen borders. EuroAirport is also implementing restrictive checks for entry to France and Switzerland.

Entry to Switzerland is prohibited except to Swiss nationals, persons holding a residence permit for Switzerland, cross-border workers, persons who travelling to Switzerland for work-related reasons, and persons in transit. 

Germany has been conducting controls at its borders with Switzerland, France and other neighbouring countries since 16 March 2020.  Here too, only persons with German citizenship or residence permits, cross-border workers and persons with a valid reason may enter the country.

Please consult the websites of the competent state authorities for further information.
