From 11 June 2024, the fee for a short-stay visa in all Schengen states will increase due to a change in the Visa Code adopted by Switzerland as a Schengen member. The Federal Council approved the rise in visa fees on 7 June.

The cost for adults will rise from 80 euros to 90 euros, and from 40 euros to 45 euros for children aged 6 to 12 for a short-stay visa. Children under six will still have free visas.

The Visa Code aims to harmonize the fees for short-stay visas across Schengen states, with adjustments every three years by the European Commission. The fee increase reflects actual costs and consulate expenses.

The Federal Council also approved an amendment to the Ordinance on Fees under the Federal Act on Foreign Nationals and Integration, affecting long-stay visas in Switzerland as well..
