  • to all citizens of a Schengen state
  • to persons with rights of free movement

  • to third-country nationals who require a visa who are already legally resident in the Schengen area because they hold a Schengen residence document.

Certificate of life OASI

Swiss citizen: Due to the pandemic COVID-19, the Central Compensation Office (CCO) in Geneva will exceptionally accept the certificate of life to be filled out and signed by the social security holder himself/herself by 30.04.2021. The certificate can then be sent with a scan of a valid identity card or passport directly to the CCO by e-mail at the following address: sedmaster@zas.admin.ch

Warning of false job advertisements

We hereby inform you about attempts of fraud in connection with non-existent job advertisements in Switzerland. These are apparently serious job advertisements, which mostly concern jobs in very well-known luxury hotels based in Switzerland.

The following e-mail address is often given as a reference: swissimmigration@consultant.com.

Interviews are not arranged, but a copy of an identity card is requested first, followed by the inevitable payment of an initial sum, which is then followed by a further request for the transfer of a more substantial sum. It is also noticeable that the notifications are often formulated in flawed Italian.
