Visa Requirements / Passport Rules

Visa Requirements

Since 12 December 2008 Switzerland is an associated member state of the Schengen agreement and hence part of the Schengen area. The Schengen regulations apply for the entry and a stay that is not subject to authorisation up to three months. For individuals who are required to hold a visa, Switzerland will issue Schengen visas for a stay up to three months that are valid for the whole Schengen area.

For details about visa requirements for Switzerland, please contact your local Swiss consulate or the homepage of the Swiss Confederation

Passport Rules

Take note: The European Union has announced new passport requirements for non-EU nationals. The new rules began in July requiring all citizens of countries outside the Schengen area to have a passport valid for at least 3 months after departure date.
