Travel Admin application

The Embassy recommends Swiss travelers to use the Travel Admin application available for iOS and Android.

The Travel Admin tool provides you with the possibility to enter the dates of travels abroad (short stays) on this portal. This information will help the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs locate and contact you more rapidly if a situation abroad can affect your safety. You will receive push notifications if the security situation in a region changes.

Ambassador Lazzarotto and his staff wish you good health !
