looks like no chances ?

With specific exceptions, several Presidential proclamations suspend and limit entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of noncitizens who were physically present within the following countries during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States. For a full list of exceptions, please refer to the relevant proclamations in the links below.

European Schengen area (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Monaco, San Marino, Vatican City)

that was cancelled long time ago. used to take it in past, was super convenient vs. dirty taxis

Most international travelers who have been in or transited through Switzerland (see 34 additional countries) in the past 14 days are not allowed to enter the United States. This includes travelers planning to transit through the United States. The United States government announced easing travel restrictions for all international arriving vaccinated travelers sometime in November. More details will be available as soon as the government releases the official update.




I guess have to wait sometime in November

I guess they don’t want you either.

Call the airline, they will be the ones deciding if, and when, you can travel.

Re: Entry requirements to NY

Even before COVID, New York was a declining destination for tourism. Now

As for JFK (and other area airports), even the NYC press sees the problem...

Have a look from Geneva maybe, direct flight for UN people, leaves at nice time, returns nice time and economy is usually fairly empty as UN people fly up front

JFK is the crappiest airports in the world. Even in pre-covid times unless you have Global Entry you are pretty much stuck on passport control for 3-4 hours.

Getting into Manhattan on Friday/Saturday evening or getting into JFK from Manhattan on Friday midday is almost impossible.

They should demolish it.

I mean an average Malpensa T2 is 10x better than JFK

These two comments are at odds with each other.

If you hate JFK there are other options not far away. Swiss was flying direct ZRH-EWR (Newark) but I'm not sure whether they still are. United was flying direct ZRH-IAD (Washington-Dulles).

Other than heli, the best solution from JFK into Manhattan is AirTrain to A or E/J/Z subway lines... actually pretty reliable and not too busy except obvious peak commuter times. Definitely feasible at your target times.
Obviously, that will make the heart fond for Swiss public transport.

Fly via Dublin, do your immigration while you wait for your Dublin to New York flight and you arrive as a domestic flight with no immigration or passport control to worry about. Well worth it

You have to check with the US Authorities, i guess it will be Pfizer Biontech and Moderna.
You need a negative PCR Test aswell (don't know the type of test).

Fly Swiss to Boston. Then get a commuter flight to LaGuardia.

In fact, lay over in Boston for a night and enjoy the best student town ever.

Boston is one of the more expensive American cities too.. !


Geneva-JFK + skytrain/subway to Manhattan is best way and quickest

OP complained about JFK so offered a better city to fly into. Could also fly to Newark. But Boston has cheap pubs and discos!

Swiss is still flying to Newark, or at least their website says so, and my son flew from Zurich to Newark at the beginning of September.
