Jump to: navigation, search

Visa requirements for Swiss citizens are administrative entry restrictions by the authorities of other states placed on citizens of Switzerland. In 2014, Swiss citizens had visa-free or visa on arrival access to 170 countries and territories, ranking the Swiss passport 5th in the world (tied with New Zealand and Singapore).[1] Although the country is not a member of the EU, its citizens have minimal restrictions when visiting other EU states, as highlighted in the following sections.
