The tasks of the embassy

The Swiss Embassy in Islamabad is glad to see that so many people want to visit our country.

Due to higher number of visa demands for Switzerland, we are currently facing longer waiting time at the visa section.

Kindly plan your travel in advance and take an appointment for your visa request at least 6 weeks before departure.

We thank you for your understanding.

Any relocation from Kabul is to be carried out by own means and on own responsibility. Checkpoints on the roads and identity checks must be expected.
