Liechtenstein

Important COVID-19 Travel

Under current UK COVID-19 restrictions, you must stay at home. It is illegal to travel abroad for holidays. Check the rules in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Do not travel unless you have a legally permitted reason to do so. In England, you must complete a declaration form for international travel (except for travel to Ireland).

Check our advice for all the countries you will visit or transit through. Some countries have closed borders, and any country may further restrict travel or bring in new rules with little warning.

To enter or return to the UK from abroad (except from Ireland), you must follow all the rules for entering the UK. These include providing your journey and contact details, and evidence of a negative COVID-19 test before you travel. When you arrive, you must quarantine and take additional COVID-19 tests. This will take place in a managed quarantine hotel if you enter England from a red list travel ban country, or enter Scotland.

The FCDO advises against all but essential travel to:

  • the whole of Liechtenstein based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

Travel is subject to entry restrictions

  • UK nationals who hold a residence or cross-border permit for Liechtenstein or Switzerland, or who are travelling from other Schengen countries, can enter Liechtenstein.
  • Travellers need to present a negative COVID-19 test result (PCR), carried out less than 72 hours before arrival. Children aged 12 or under are exempt from this requirement.
  • Travellers from the UK must quarantine for 10 days from arrival. You can reduce the quarantine period to 7 days with a new, negative COVID-19 test result (rapid antigen test or PCR) and have approval from the Liechtenstein government.
