Au Pair in Switzerland - visa

Updated: Mar 21, 2023

Getting a visa done is sometimes a stressful process, luckily for you we are here to help!

The Switzerland visa process is a fairly easy process and waiting for a verdict may take up to 5 business days since the appointment was attended, however waiting times may be longer in some cases. Before you attend the appointment, a few things have to be done and a couple of documents have to be gathered first.

The visa process formally starts once you have confirmed the match with your host family. They will get documentation ready on their side and our Visa Experts will give you all the needed documentation. It may take up to 2 months to gather the documentation.

You will be assisted to schedule a visa appointment at the Embassy whilst we wait for your documents to be issued.

The total visa costs for Switzerland are R1360 (at the time of print) and you will pay this at the Embassy. The appointment is attended in Pretoria, South Africa at the Swiss Embassy. Citizens of Namibia and Botswana will also attend their appointments in Pretoria, South Africa. Zimbabweans may attend the appointment in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Once the appointment has been attended there is a 5-day waiting period for the visa to be issued. You will be notified once your passport is ready for pick up or your passport will be couriered to you (it depends on which option you chose).

When you have received your passport, we can formally start to book your flights and then you are ready for departure!
