Restricted access to the Embassy counters during pandemia COVID-19
Due to the current pandemic situation COVID-19 and in accordance with the decisions of the government of Kosovo, the consular activities of this Embassy continue but in a restricted manner. The access to our counters is limited.
Please note: Due to the existing entry restrictions for all non-essential travels to Switzerland from third countries, the Embassy is currently unable to accept new visa applications. It is therefore temporarily not possible to book an appointment for applying for a Visa C.
As long as the entry restrictions remain in place, visa applications can only be accepted in exceptional cases if there are compelling reasons that justify one of the listed exceptions to the entry restrictions. Further information can be found here: State Secretariat for Migration SEM
The Federal Council will decide on the relaxation of entry restrictions towards third countries at a later date and in consultation with the Schengen states.
The definitive arrangements for the easing of restrictions that begins on 15 June 2020 will be finalized in due course and published on this webpage. We therefore recommend that you check our website regularly for the latest information. Until then, entries for exclusively tourist purposes will remain prohibited.
Please note that entering the Embassy of Switzerland is only guaranteed on the basis of an appointment. Appointments can only be requested by e-mail.
Furthermore, the Federal Council decided to withhold temporarily the issuance of Schengen visas in all third countries until 15.06.2020. The visa center TLScontact will remain closed starting 16.03.2020 until further notice.
