Students who are staying for longer than 3 months and who do not come from a European country may require a student visa to enter Switzerland. Please refer to the website here to see which nationalities require visas. A student cannot enter Switzerland without the correct visa. The visa can take up to 12 weeks to process. Therefore, applications for the new school year must be made as soon as possible, to ensure that the student can commence the new school year on time.
It is the parents' responsibility to apply for the visa.
