COVID-19 tests

COVID-19 tests are available in Zermatt’s medical practices. Booking is essential.

  • There are currently two tests: the PCR test and the rapid antigen test. The PCR test is analysed by an external laboratory. The result can take up to 48 hours. With a rapid test, the result is back in 15 minutes. Both tests are carried out in all Zermatt’s medical practices.
  • Certificates are issued in German or English.
  • Costs have to be paid direct to the practices. For people resident in Switzerland, the PCR test costs CHF 156, for everyone else it costs CHF 180. For people resident in Switzerland, the rapid test costs CHF 80, for everyone else it costs CHF 90. If the test is requested by a doctor, the Swiss government will cover the cost.
