Entering and leaving / Crossing the border

The situation in terms of border controls in Europe and beyond is evolving very rapidly and the following contents are provided for information purposes only. The Airport assumes no responsibility for any errors or inaccuracies in such information, or for any related consequential damages. Please consult the websites of the countries concerned for information about their current travel restrictions.
Leaving the country
As a rule, you may leave the country at any time but you need a permission or a valid reason to enter the country of destination. For this purpose, contact your airline, the Embassy or diplomatic representation of the destination country, or any other competent authority. We strongly advise against leaving the country without checking the entry restrictions at your destination.
Entering Switzerland
ATTENTION: From 6 July 2020, persons entering from risk countries will have to spend 10 days in quarantine. As of 2 July 2020, this list includes the following countries (more information here): Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Iraq, Israel, Kosovo, Kuwait, Moldova, Northern Macedonia, Oman, Panama, Peru, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, South Africa, Sweden, Turks and Caicos Islands, United States of America.

Entry into Switzerland is unrestricted for Swiss nationals, persons holding a residence permit, and cross-border commuters. Since 15 June 2020, Switzerland has lifted all travel restrictions and restored full free movement of persons from Germany, Austria and France. Additionally, from 15 June 2020 normal entry requirements will once again apply to all citizens of Schengen states and to persons with the right of free movement from non-Schengen states, such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia and Cyprus. Border controls are still possible.

For all others the following still applies:

It also includes persons wishing to attend important family events, such as weddings, funerals or religious festivals. In this case, you must complete the following declaration:
   Self-declaration for visits (only in German)

Entering France
As a rule, French nationals are always allowed entry to France.
Since 15 June 2020, France has lifted all travel restrictions and restored full freedom of movement with Switzerland and Germany. In addition, on 15 June, France lifted all travel restrictions at its internal European borders. People from countries in the European area (EU Member States as well as Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican) will therefore be able to enter French territory without restrictions.

However, by way of reciprocity, restrictions will continue to apply at the borders with the United Kingdom:
The United Kingdom has chosen to introduce on 8 June a 14-day quarantine obligation for passengers arriving from France. Thus, as from 15 June, travelers from the United Kingdom will no longer be subject to entry restrictions but will still be invited to observe a 14-day quarantine on arrival.

European Union countries, including France, have agreed to reopen their borders and the Schengen area from Wednesday 1 July to travelers from certain countries. The provisionally validated list includes 14 countries, such as Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay. To these are added Andorra, Monaco, the Vatican and Saint Martin.

All other foreign nationals and third-country citizens are still subject to restrictions.
