The health and safety of GIAF’s association community is of the utmost importance to us. Health and safety measure will be taken according to Swiss government regulations. 

GIAF 2021 promotes a ,risk free registration’ and a 100% refund policy to all participants in case of cancellation of the GIAF live event due to Swiss government restrictions related to COVID-19, should they come into effect. 

The following Covid-19 rules apply for GIAF attendees onsite:  

  • You have to be fully vaccinated (App certificate or certificate print out required)
  • You have recovered from COVID-19 (Certificate required)
  • If none of the above applies to you, you need to show a valid negative COVID-19 test (PCR or a rapid antigen test results)

Legally, according to current Swiss regulation, the wearing of masks indoor is not required. We want to be cautious and ask everyone to wear their masks when moving around the venue. Masks will not be required at your seats and workshop areas. The required social distancing measures are being considered and implemented. We are asking all attendees to please respect these measures.  

Geneva COVID-19 Test Centre:

The closest test centre to/from the event venue (InterContinental Geneva) is located at the Geneva airport (4km distance). Check here for further information:
