Covid certificate and entry requirements

Certificate requirement

As of September 13, 2021, the certificate requirement has been expanded to include the following:

  • Indoor areas of bars and restaurants
  • Clubs, discos and dance events
  • Private indoor events (e.g. weddings, seminars, exhibitions, concerts, theater, cinema, sport events)
  • Sports and recreational facilities, such as museums, libraries, zoos, fitness centers, indoor pools, aqua parks, casinos

We kindly ask you to have the Covid certificate and an identification document (passport, identity card, driver's license, Swiss Pass) ready when visiting our restaurant establishments.
The validity of the certificate is checked at the entrance of our restaurants by means of the "Covid Certificate Check" app and matched with your ID card. Only certificates with QR code are accepted.

Throughout the hotel, the wearing of masks is still compulsory up to the areas with certificate control.

Certificate conversion

All guests who have a Covid certificate that is not compatible with the EU system must have it converted to a Swiss certificate. Guests from third countries (e.g. USA, Gulf States, South Korea, UK) are affected. Persons who have been vaccinated in a member state of the EU should already have an EU certificate that is also valid in Switzerland. Furthermore, recovered persons from the EU and third countries can also apply for a Swiss Covid certificate.

Here you can find information about the third countries from which the Covid certificate is valid in Switzerland and does not need to be converted.


Guests from third countries can fill out an application form on this website and upload the relevant documents.

The following information must be provided by the guest:

  • A valid identity document (passport or ID)
  • Proof of complete vaccination abroad or a positive molecular biological test result (e.g. PCR test) from a foreign laboratory
  • Proof that the guest is entering Switzerland (e.g. hotel accommodation, travel ticket)

Due to the processing time of up to 5 days, we recommend that you apply for the certificate before entering Switzerland.
