Schengen visa fees

If you are holder of a Diplomatic, Official or Service passport Switzerland is represented through the Norway Embassy in Lilongwe. Kindly contact the competent Embassy directly for the visa fee.

If you hold an ordinary passport or are a foreign national, please consult the homepage of the Regional Consular Center Southern Africa in Pretoria, Visa section, for the visa fee. 

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.

Visas for family members of EU/EFTA citizens are issued free of charge.
