Hello! I've been reading recently that they've extended the vaccine is now good for 12 months for entry. The government website has conflicting information, where the extended timeframe is updated in some areas but not others, I'm wondering if you have any more information on that?

As a partner to a Swiss citizen, travel to Switzerland from a high risk country might be possible if partnership can be proven with respective documents. Is this information correct?

Yes we believe that is accurate, but perhaps contact your nearest consulate or border police to get more clarity on what documents and testing/quarantines will apply

Vaccination no longer than 6 months ??? What the hell is that !! Did I read this correctly?

Yes, the Swiss government page says there is not enough data at this time and they want to make a cut off of 6 months. I imagine this will quickly be extended
