Inviting family and friends to Switzerland

Purpose of a Visitor’s Visa: Traveling to Switzerland for visiting family or friends. For process, required documents, fees and all the official info, follow the VFS.GLOBAL website.

For preparing the invitation letter and cover letter, below templates would be very helpful:
Word template for invitation letter (see pdf)
Word template for cover letter (see pdf)

Note: For some countries within the schengen region, you may need a multiple entry Schengen Visa (Croatia for e.g. as of 03.2018). If this is the case for your application, mention clearly in your application form, cover letter and invitation letter since you typically get only a single entry Schengen Visa when you apply for a visitor’s visa.
