Assistance (for meeting held in GENEVA only)
ITU Secretariat provides administrative support to participants having
difficulty in obtaining a visa.
Request for visa assistance can be made online
by the focal point upon registration of participants.
In case the
request for visa assistance is not made online, an official request duly signed by the
responsible person of the entity to be represented should be submitted to the
ITU Secretariat (fax No. +41 22 730 6627) providing applicant details as
First name, Last name

Passport number, date of issue, date of expiry

Please note that citizens of some countries are required to obtain a visa in
order to enter and spend any time in Switzerland. The visa must be requested at
least four (4) weeks before the date of beginning of the meeting 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 entity you represent, approach the
competent Swiss authorities in order to facilitate delivery of the visa but only
within the period mentioned of three weeks.
The ITU Secretariat cannot intervene to obtain entry visas to Switzerland issued
at the airport.
