The consulate general will inform you about the current fees incured by ordering a civil status document. The fee has to be paid in advance.
It will generally require at least 30 working days, depending on the registry office involved, before the order can be filed through the intermediary of the competent Swiss representation.
The Swiss representation reserves the right to adapt the amounts at any time in relation to exchange rate fluctuations.
Documents issued by a Swiss authority normally require diplomatic or consular legalisation or legalisation by apostille prior to their submission to a foreign authority. You will find information on legalisation under the heading Legalisations.
