Since early August, traffic, railway and air-traffic police have been making random checks on returning travellers.
“The number of infractions committed by travellers returning by car has been going down and is now close to zero,” said Jonathan Pfund of the Federal Police.
“The rules are also being very well respected in train stations and airports. It is up to companies to remind passengers to fill in this form. If they fail to do so, they, too, risk being sanctioned.”
The most common “infractions” are due to oversights, such as families who fill in a single form instead of one per person. In such cases, tickets are not issued but each defaulter is asked to correctly fill in the form on the spot.
