Border controls to ease from May 11th
Border controls will be lightened from May 11th – but there will still be checks.
But family reunification will be allowed; Swiss, EU or Efta nationals will be able to enter the country to meet family members.
Also those third country workers who were waiting for a visa to work will be able to enter and the government says visa and work permit applications will start to be processed again from the middle of May.
And cross-border contractors will be able to work in Switzerland, providing the contract was signed before March 25th.
Some of the smaller border crossings which have been closed will be reopening from May 11th.
