TORONTO — Switzerland will reopen to fully vaccinated Canadian travellers effective June 26, 2021.
Pascal Prinz, Director Canada for Switzerland Tourism, says the Swiss government has outlined the return to normality after the global pandemic including the complete opening to international guests and the full opening of tourist infrastructures including restaurants, events and leisure facilities.
Switzerland Tourism is already actively present in Toronto to provide information about existing protection measures and rules, as well as travel opportunities in Switzerland for the summer and autumn 2021, Prinz adds.
“We are very happy to welcome fully vaccinated Canadian guests back in Switzerland. Our campaign with Vancouver-based photographer Callum Snape showcases why Canadians will love reconnecting with friends and family in the heart of Europe. Hike and bike in the Swiss Alps, explore our boutique towns, swim in our turquoise lakes, discover in our four language regions and ride our scenic trains along palm trees and stunning glaciers”, says Prinz.
Canadians who can prove that they are fully vaccinated will be able to travel to Switzerland without quarantine or PCR tests, starting June 26. Upon return to Canada local regulations apply.
On June 21 the Canadian government announced that effective July 5, fully vaccinated Canadians returning to Canada from abroad no longer need to quarantine, nor do they need to do the day 8 PCR test. They do still need to do PCR tests pre-arrival and on-arrival.
