Visit the Embassy of Switzerland in Washington, D.C. website for the most current visa information.
Switzerland is a party to the Schengen Agreement. U.S. citizens may enter the Schengen area without a visa for up to 90 days for tourism, business trips, or transit to non-Schengen destinations. Travelers should confirm with Switzerland’s Embassy or consulates in the United States whether they require a visa for their specific purpose of travel. To work or study in Switzerland, a visa is required.
Your passport needs to be valid for at least another six months beyond your planned date of departure from the Schengen area. Switzerland strictly enforces the passport validity requirements and travelers without sufficient passport validity are denied entry and returned to their point of departure.
You also need to be able to show sufficient funds and a return airline ticket.
For additional details about travel to and within Schengen countries, please see our Schengen fact sheet.
The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of Switzerland.
