A Schengen visa simplifies entry to Switzerland

Since December 12, 2008, Schengen visas have been accepted for entry into Switzerland. The Schengen visa replaces the Swiss visa for short stays (a maximum of three months within any six month period). This visa enables travel to Switzerland and the other Schengen countries on a single visa. Germany and France, which border on Switzerland near Basel, are also in the Schengen area.
