The government has decided to extend economic sanctions against Syria in line with the European Union.
An additional 34 individuals and 19 companies were added to the list according to the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs.
A total of 108 alleged members of the regime of President Bashar al-Assad are now banned from entering Switzerland and their bank accounts have been blocked.
The 38 Syrian firms under embargo include financial institutions, oil companies as well as the al-Watan newspaper.
The decision by the Swiss cabinet comes after the United Nations Security Council failed to agree a resolution condemning the Syrian government’s violence against its citizens.
