Swiss saying will let people in from 28th either vaccinated or PCR tested so good for those flying if happens. Just need France to do same for me. Saying mid July for our vacation certs now so will need a test option.

Easyjet have cancelled most flights to Geneva. Only a few are still flying. But still good news.

Surely France has already done the same ? (or is it coz you are in NI ?). Just checked with chalet Im staying at n some guys have arrived already with no probs driving from uk).

Im just waiting to here about Swiss rules (and transfers) and Ill be flying out next week.

So anyone who is confused as me..I found this...basically if youve had both jabs you can arrive in Switzerland (and transit to France) without Quarentine and you dont need to show Test. (and yes..UK is country of concern).

"Entry from a country with a variant of the virus of concern

The current list of high-risk countries issued by the Federal Office of Public Health is to be revised and will only contain countries or regions where virus variants of concern to Switzerland are in circulation. Persons who have been vaccinated or who have recovered from the disease will be permitted to enter Switzerland from these countries or regions without having to be tested or to quarantine as long as it is certain that the vaccination offers good protection. Those who have neither been vaccinated nor have recovered must present a negative PCR test or rapid antigen test and go into quarantine on entry.

In practice, this means that persons who have been vaccinated or who have recovered do not have to produce a negative test even when travelling from countries where the Delta variant is widespread (such as India or the United Kingdom) and do not have to quarantine on entry. The vaccines used in Switzerland are only slightly less effective against the Delta variant and thus still offer a very high level of protection."

So..an edit..the bit about arriving by plane is confusing, there is a seperate pdf which says all plane arrivals need negative test but this bit contradicts that..

"Restrictions on entering Switzerland to be relaxed

The Federal Council has also decided to relax the requirements for entering Switzerland, as it proposed in the consultation. Persons entering from the Schengen area will no longer be required to quarantine. The requirement to be tested will now apply only to persons arriving by plane who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered from COVID-19. Contact details will still be required when arriving by plane. In addition, Switzerland is easing the existing entry restrictions for persons arriving from third countries who can prove they have been vaccinated. The list of countries issued by the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM) has been amended accordingly. It is now once again possible for third-country citizens travelling from countries such as the USA, Albania or Serbia to enter Switzerland."

The NHS app is only England, we waiting for NI to issue a vaccine certificate like scotland and wales, if you are not both vaccinated and can prove it with either certificate or app France wont let you in.. Irelands app wont be till end july.

But to add even if youve had both jabs you need test to enter France, but it can be the cheaper antigen one...
