We would remind you that citizens of some countries are required to obtain a visa in order to enter and spend time in Switzerland. Where this is the case,
the visa must be requested and obtained from the office (embassy or consulate) representing Switzerland in your country or, if there is no such office in
your country, from the one that is closest to the country of departure. If problems are encountered, the Union can, at the official request of the
administration or company you represent, approach the competent Swiss authorities in order to facilitate delivery of the visa. Visa requests should in
such cases be made by official letter from the administration or company you represent. This letter must specify your name, function and date of birth,
as well as the number and dates of issue and expiry of your passport. It must be accompanied by a photocopy of the personal details pages of your passport
and by the completed registration form, and must be sent to TSB by fax (+41 22 730 5853) or e-mail message (tsbreg[at]itu.int) bearing the words "visa request".
Please note that the Union needs at least one week to process the various documents required for the delivery of a visa.
