During the coronavirus lockdown, Switzerland closed many of its international border crossings. As schools and more businesses open, the government is reopening more border points. However, cross-border movement remains restricted.
From Monday 11 May 2020, the following additional border entry points into and out of Switzerland reopened:
Geneva: Certoux, Chancy I, Croix-de-Rozon, Landecy
Ticino: Camedo, Ponte Faloppia, Pizzamiglio, Brusata
Vaud: Crassier, L’Auberson
Opening times at the border points above are limited. They’re typically open in the morning and late afternoon to early evening. For a full list of borders open to private traffic and their opening times click here.
Crossing at these and other border points is still restricted. Only Swiss citizens, those with residence permits, cross-border workers, those transporting goods and those in transit are allowed into Switzerland. People can enter for emergency reasons too.

The total number of fully or partially open borders is now around 90. A large number remain closed.
Restrictions are to be progressively reduced. On 15 May 2020, the government announced some easing of restrictions between Austria and Germany. Further easing is predicted on 15 June 2020.
