Schengen visa for a stay of up to 90 days

New procedure for visas

Appointments can only be made online on www.swiss-visa.ch. We currently have a waiting period of 4-weeks for making an appointment to file short stay visa applications. Please note that the processing of requests lasts 15 days from the date of the appointment. You will need to submit your complete file personally at the Embassy on the day of the appointment. Incomplete files will not be accepted. The appointment is valid for one person only.  If you are traveling in group, please make separate appointments.

Since the visa form is linked to making an appointment online on www.swiss-visa.ch, you must first complete the online form before you can make an appointment. The fees (exact amount) are paid at the counter when the application is submitted.
