TLScontact application procedure, established in conjunction with the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai, aims to provide the best visa application service. Our aim is to help you to prepare your visa application and assist the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai in processing applications in a timely manner.

The applications received by TLScontact are transferred to the Embassy or Consulate General of Switzerland, which has the exclusive right and responsibility to deal with the applications, to decide whether to grant or to deny a visa, to request additional information or documents and/or to submit the applications for further decision to the competent migration authorities in Switzerland. TLScontact staff is, therefore, in no way involved in the decision making concerning the visa applications and is at no point informed about their outcome. Passports are returned by the Embassy or Consulate General of Switzerland to the Visa Acceptance Centre in sealed envelopes.
