The Embassy of Switzerland in the Philippines would like to alert you to the existence of fraudulent practices and offers in connection with the granting of visas and strongly advises you not to follow them.

Indeed, it happens that companies fraudulently offer their services on websites claiming to be able to help you to obtain an appointment or a visa. In return for information, they demand a fee. Please note that only the information on the official website of the Embassy is valid.

Please note: The visa application form is free of charge. In general all applications for a Schengen Visa must be personally submitted at our external service provider VFS Global.

If you have any doubts, please contact immediately the visa section of the Swiss Embassy.
