Our cooperation with the Swiss Embassy and Consulates in China is coming to an end. 

Since the 1st of September TLScontact is no longer accepting visa applications on behalf of the Swiss missions in China. 

Applicants whose applications are currently processed by the Swiss missions can retrieve their passports from TLScontact until the 14th of September. Please follow the status of your application closely. 

Passports that have not been picked up until the 14th of September will be returned to the Swiss Embassy or Consulate. 

The website and locations of the new service provider for visa applications are published through the website of the Embassy of Switzerland.

Please select the purpose of your trip to Switzerland using one of the following visa categories.

Short stay

You wish to apply for a Schengen visa and your stay will not exceed 90 days.

Long stay (National visa)

TLScontact does not process any kind of long stay visa application for stays that exceed 90 days, including short stay working visa for a duration of less than 90 days as this visa type belongs to the national visa category.

The visa applications should be lodged directly at the Embassy of Switzerland in Beijing or at the Consulate competent for your work, study or residence place. Please check the jurisdiction section to know your consular area. You can then proceed to register and schedule an appointment on the website of the Swiss Visa Application Center in Beijing, Shanghai or Guangzhou.
