    Passport details

    If you are a British Citizen or British Subject with right of abode in the United Kingdom, you will not need a visa to enter Switzerland. Other passport holders should check entry requirements with the nearest Swiss Diplomatic mission.

    As the UK will be leaving the European Union you must ensure that your passport is still valid for six months after the date of your return.

    For the most up to date entry requirements and travel advice we recommend that you log on and enter your passport details into the simple to use foreign office passport checker website which will tell you immediately if your passport will need renewing before your holiday. 


    If you hold a passport from another country, we recommend that you contact your nearest Swiss Embassy regarding visa or other entry requirements. People with British subject or British overseas citizens’ passports are also advised to check.
