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.
