A RETURN TO NORMAL: Switzerland welcomes fully vaccinated Canadian guests

The Swiss government has outlined a return to normality after the global pandemic including the complete opening to international guests and the full opening of tourist infrastructures (restaurants, events, leisure facilities).The  government announced that it is opening the country’s borders to fully vaccinated travellers from Canada from June 26, in time for the summer holidays.

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.

“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 Pascal Prinz, Director Canada for Switzerland Tourism.

Canadians, who can prove that they are fully vaccinated will be able to travel to Switzerland without quarantine or PCR tests starting tomorrow. Upon return to Canada local regulations apply.

Over 4,000 tourism businesses use the Swiss “Clean & Safe” label to document the application of comprehensive protection concepts. Information is available on the website.

Travellers appreciate – especially after the pandemic – Switzerland’s values such as reliability, cleanliness, safety and naturalness.
