National visa fees

The Ordinance on fees under the Federal Act on Foreign Nationals (SR 142.209) and the Visa Code stipulate the fees to be collected. The amounts are payable in the currency determined by the Swiss representation.

The fee for the visa is due at the time the application is submitted and is not refundable. If you withdraw the application or it is rejected the fee will not be reimbursed.

The Swiss representation reserves the right to adapt the amounts of the fees at any time in relation with exchange rate fluctuations.

Category Amount in CHF (to be paid in EGP) 
Adults 80.00
Children aged from 6 to 12 40.00
Children up to 6 years old free

Each application is checked individually and no guarantee can be given that a Visa will be issued. The Embassy cannot be held responsible for costs involved when a Visa is refused. Please note that in certain cases the application has to be submitted to the authorities in Switzerland. In this case it may take up to 12 weeks until a decision is given to the Embassy.
