Passports, permit and visa:

Our Admission team will organise the obtention of the Residence Permit for non-Swiss residents, although we cannot obtain visas on students' behalf.

The parents / legal guardians must submit an application for a multi-entry visa by the end of May at the latest to the Swiss Embassy or Consulate in their own country.

Please note that visas can take up to 12 weeks to process.

Students are not able to begin studying in Switzerland until their visa has been approved, so it is crucial that an application is made at the earliest opportunity, to avoid important work being missed at the beginning of the new school year.


If the student holds a current passport from one of these countries, he/she can travel freely in and out of Switzerland and the Admission Team will obtain the student’s residency permit upon arrival in Switzerland:

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San-Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and The Vatican.
