Visa and Immigration

If you’re an Indian passport holder travelling to Geneva, then you have to apply for a Schengen visa, even though Switzerland is not a part of the EU. The Schengen visa allows tourists for a short stay; it is issued to tourists for up to 90 days from the date of entry, who are planning to visit Geneva for tourism purposes or to meet their friends and family.  

One of the essential points to remember while applying for the visa is that your passport should be valid for at least six months prior to your travel date.
