Re: Travel to Switzerland with US Passport

Sorry this information might come too late, but generally the answer is Yes you can. I did in August. It's about where you are coming from, not your citizenship. And BTW, they (SEM and consulate) told me that for immeditae family reunification in the case where no visa is required (such as for americans) you can enter anyways, but need to quarantine upon arrival. The big thing is getting the AIRLINE to believe this and let you on the plane. I actually had to get a letter from the local swiss consulate since the airline didn't think I would be allowed to enter and therefore said I might be blocked from boarding

What happened: I am an American. I was in Taiwan. I came to see my girlfriend once they allowed for non-married couple to renunite in August. Didn't have to quarantine since I came from squeaky clean Taiwan and transited through an airport in a country not on the quarantine list. Entered smoothly at Zurich airport.
