Travel Information

Visa requirements: Visas for foreign nationals can be issued by the Swiss representation covering their place of residence. Basically, there are two types of visa. Both can be applied for by completing a visa application form submitted in good time.

For foreign visitors, who are planning a longer stay in Switzerland and want to discover the country and its sights using public transport, we recommend purchasing a Swiss Travel Pass. The Swiss Travel System provides visitors to Switzerland with tickets for the entire Swiss public transport network. It offers affordable all-in-one tickets including the Swiss Pass and Swiss Flexi Pass for combined journeys by train, post bus and boat.

Travelling by Train

There are regular, direct train connections to all larger Swiss towns, as well as to Europe’s most important cities. Passengers can reach Zurich, Basel, Interlaken and Lucerne in under an hour with a direct connection.
