Embassy operations during the continuing COVID-19 situation
In order to be in line with the measures taken by the government of the Arab Republic of Egypt respecting the “physical distance” and the “stay at home” injunctions, operations demanding personal presence at the Embassy consular counters will be available on appointment only. Inquiries and appointment requests can be submitted via e-mail to email@example.com.
Due to the current situation, the Swiss government has decided to stop the issuance of Schengen visa until further notice. Therefore, the visa section will remain closed for the issuance of C type Schengen visa for the time being and will resume its operations in coordination with the other Schengen member states.
Applications for national visas for Switzerland (long stay of more than 90 days) are now accepted on appointment only. Inquiries and appointment requests are to be submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
General information on current entry restrictions to Switzerland and on the resumption of the issuance of Schengen visa can be found on the webpage of the State Secretary of Migration of Switzerland.
Please stay in touch and consult our embassy webpage, Facebook page, and Twitter account; and follow updates on the website of the Egyptian Ministry of Health as well as the website of the Federal Office for Public Health.
