People entering Switzerland must present a negative COVID-19 test upon boarding an airplane or upon arrival in Switzerland and undergo a 10-day quarantine.

The impact of the recently discovered Omicron variant is not yet known.

Switzerland reported the discovery of the Omicron variant earlier than the RIVM. Shortly after the Swiss announcement, the RIVM confirmed that some travelers who tested positive for the coronavirus from South Africa were most likely carrying the Omicron variant, reported by NL Times
