Visa Support

Visa Support - Meetings in Switzerland

​Citizens of some countries are required to obtain a visa in order to enter Switzerland. Visa applications must be submitted to the Swiss foreign mission closest to their place of residence at least four (4) weeks prior to the planned travel date.
Registration of participants to ITU-R activities is carried out exclusively on-line by  Designated Focal Points (DFPs) who are responsible for the handling of all registration formalities for their entity. When needed, visa support must also be requested by the DFP during the on-line registration process.
The following information must be provided for each participant requiring visa support:  
  • Name on passport
  • Date and place of birth
  • Passport number
  • Passport issuance and expiry dates
  • Passport country of issuance
There is no need to send further documentation to ITU as the visa support request procedure will follow automatically. For meetings held in Switzerland, please allow up to 21 days for a confirmation of support to be provided by ITU.
Visa support confirmations will be sent to the DFP who will be responsible for forwarding each confirmation to the concerned participant. Support confirmations will NOT be sent directly to meeting participants.
