Re: Travel to Switzerland with US Passport

Who is not allowed to enter Switzerland?

The ban on entry applies to foreign nationals who want to travel to Switzerland from a high-risk country for a stay here of up to three months, i.e.:

Persons who wish to obtain services in Switzerland;
Tourists, visitors and participants in events;
Persons who wish to come to Switzerland for medical treatment that has not yet begun or that is not regarded as urgently required;
Persons seeking employment or who have been invited for a job interview in Switzerland;
Persons who wish to submit an application for a residence permit.
High-risk countries are all the countries outside the Schengen area with the exception of the countries listed in Annex 1 of the COVID-19 Ordinance 3.
And the US is not on the list of exceptions.... so I would say, according to the SEM - US citizens who do not have the right to freedom of movement are not allowed:

But some people may get in... there are exceptions.
