France and Switzerland inaugurate largest cross-border rail network
On March 14, 2022, the presentation of the vaccination passport in those places where it was required (leisure and cultural centers, commercial catering, trade fairs and professional shows, etc.) ceased to be mandatory. Similarly, the health passport ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
Since the beginning of the crisis, the health control system has made it possible to preserve our health system and to delay the arrival on French territory of variants with worrying characteristics. This system ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.
However, in the event of the emergence of a dangerous variant, the entry into French territory of travelers from countries considered to be at risk could again be subject to the presentation of a negative virological test.
For information on health regulations concerning entry into the territory of other countries, please consult the Travel Advice section of the website of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.

Keep in mind that we live in a time of many changes, so it is advisable to check with official sources before setting off. At IATI Insurance we are constantly updating our articles, so if there is still time left for your trip, check back here to see if there are any changes to the requirements for traveling to Switzerland now.
The reason for this is that the authorities no longer see a risk of the system being overloaded due to the immunity of the population. Still, only 70% of the Swiss population has the full coronavirus vaccine regimen.
Remember that, due to the current situation, travel documents and requirements may change. At IATI we are constantly updating this information. However, we always recommend to check with official sources.

REQUIREMENTS for TRAVEL to EUROPE in 2022
Before contacting the consulate, please consult this section. If the consular section receives a question whose answer is in this list, it will not answer your mail. Thank you for your understanding.
If your studies exceed 90 days, you must apply for a national visa by presenting the required documentation for this case. If it is a short-term course that does not exceed 90 days, you can travel without a visa.
For travel related to employment contracts or paid internships, the requirement to obtain a visa remains in force, even if the paid work you will be doing is for a period of less than 90 days.
You need a letter of invitation from friends or relatives who are guarantors of accommodation during your stay. The characteristics of the form or document as well as the procedure to obtain it vary for each country. In the case of Germany, an informal letter signed by your relatives or friends is sufficient. The letter must indicate the address, the degree of relationship and the duration of stay. You can present the printed letter at the immigration control. It does not have to be an original, nor does it require authentication of the signature or an apostille.
