Entry rules for Switzerland:
No vaccination or recovery certificates or test results (neither PCR nor antigen test) are required for entry into Switzerland. Also, an entry form no longer needs to be presented.
This applies at EuroAirport for all passengers with Swiss citizenship or a residence permit for Switzerland, for all others the French rules apply.
However, continue to observe the applicable entry restrictions of the State Secretariat for Migration.

Entry rules for France:
France is using a colour system to indicate the health situation of each country; currently, all countries are either on the "green" or "amber" list, each with different regulations: www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus/deplacements.

The following rules currently apply:
If you are entering from a "green" country:
  • Vaccinated: Proof of vaccination
  • Non-vaccinated: Negative PCR test result < 72 hours or antigen test result < 48 hours or a valid certificate of recovery
If you are entering from an "amber" country:

At EuroAirport, due to its binational status, the following French travel regulations are currently in force for ALL ARRIVING AND DEPARTING PASSENGERS (except for passengers with Swiss citizenship or a residency permit for Switzerland):


+++ Vaccinations +++

Full vaccination status is accepted by many countries as a means of gaining entry without the need for additional testing. Currently however, a valid, negative Covid test, (a PCR or rapid antigen test), is still required to enter certain destinations.
Due to the rapidly changing nature of the situation, please check the applicable rules with the authorities of the destination country in question. Please also refer to the rules of the individual countries in respect of vaccines and the appropriate proof of vaccination.



Mandatory face masks
As EuroAirport is subject to French Covid regulations, protective face masks are still mandatory on airport buses save for children under 11. Please observe the regulations of your airline regarding the obligation to wear a mask in the aircraft.
