Switzerland to open 9 new visa centers in China

by swisscham in General Interest

The Embassy of Switzerland in China is expanding its visa services to more Chinese cities and it will open nine new Visa Acceptance Centers in nine cities from June to July. Chinese visitors to Switzerland and the Schengen region, of which Switzerland is a member country, can hand in applications at more convenient locations and enjoy faster services. This is expected to ease holiday preparations for Chinese tourists traveling to Switzerland this coming summer. The nine cities, in order of opening, are Xi’an, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shenzhen, Kunming, Changsha, Fuzhou, Jinan and Chongqing. The new centers are scheduled to be inaugurated between June 15 and July 15 and will be operated by the embassy’s commercial partner TLScontact. The centers are authorized by the embassy in China to accept applications for short stay individual visas and provide administrative support services and biometric data implementation. The expansion of the visa services is another initiative of the embassy to meet the increasing number of Chinese tourists to Switzerland following the opening of three centers in Chengdu, Wuhan and Shenyang in January.
