The EU has officially recognised the Swiss COVID certificate. At the same time, Switzerland for its part has assured recognition of the certificates issued by EU and EFTA states. The Swiss COVID certificate has been connected with the EU’s digital interface and will be usable throughout the entire EU/EFTA area starting last night, 8 to 9 July. International interoperability has been a high priority in the creation of the Swiss COVID certificate since the beginning of its development.
The EU Digital COVID Certificate is designed to facilitate safe travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. Individual states decide how the certificate can be used. Each country decides its own entry requirements and has the authority to adjust them on an ongoing basis according to how the epidemiological situation develops. It is therefore important for people travelling with the certificate to always find out about the current entry requirements for the country they are travelling to.
