Switzerland's neighbouring countries are exempted from this regulation. In the case of these countries, it is not the entire country that is listed, but rather regions.

The test must be taken within 72 hours prior to arrival.
Only molecular tests are accepted - the result of a rapid antigen test is not sufficient.
