Important notice on COVID-19 related travel restrictions
As part of the measures to contain the spreading of COVID-19, individual Schengen States have introduced travel restrictions, including at certain borders between those states. Depending on the development of the epidemiological situation both within and outside the EU, travel restrictions may be eased or reintroduced. All travelers are responsible for verifying the travel restrictions in place before departure. Holders of a Schengen visa are not automatically entitled to enter the Schengen area but must respect the travel restrictions in place. Further information refer to: Re-open EU
The Swiss Federal Council decided, that entry into Switzerland is generally prohibited (with only few exceptions). If you are holding a valid Swiss National visa type D, you are still allowed to enter.
Please make an appointment with VFS Global to submit your national visa D application at one of our representations.

Health-related measures are issued by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH). For information on such measures, please consult the homepage of the FOPH.
