Can I complete entry forms for my travel companions too (friends, children, family members)?
Why do I have to complete the entry form?

Why do I have to complete the entry form?

Answer

It’s because of contact tracing. There is a chance you have been exposed to the coronavirus while travelling. Even though you might only test positive yourself later, you might already have infected others during the trip. By providing your contact information in the entry form, you help us to trace back possible infections and to inform your fellow travellers of possible exposure. By doing this, we can break the transmission chain.

 

What happens to the data that I enter on the entry form?

What happens to the data that I enter on the entry form?

Answer

The data is processed by the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH and forwarded to the cantonal authorities. The cantonal authorities use the data for contact tracing.

The cantonal authorities only receive the details of people who are resident or staying in the relevant canton.
