Schengen Area

Free movement of persons within the Schengen Area

Switzerland has been a part of the Schengen Area in Europe since 2008.

The Schengen Agreement supports the free movement of persons within the EU member states. This means that regular border controls have been eliminated. Having said that, pursuant to applicable law, travellers (including children and infants) must have identification and carry the accordant travel documents (ID card, passport, emergency passport) with them at all times.

Driving licences, bank and credit cards or similar documents are not recognised as valid travel documents, nor will such be accepted as a means to prove one’s identity.
