French Embassy in Myanmar to Issue Short-term Swiss Visas

The Embassy of France in Yangon will represent Switzerland in terms of issuing short-stay visas to Switzerland, the Embassy of Switzerland in Myanmar said.

The Federal Department of Foreign Affairs of Switzerland and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of France recently concluded an agreement where the French embassy in Yangon will represent Switzerland in issuing short term visas for Myanmar citizens travelling to Switzerland.

The measure was undertaken “due to the introduction of the biometric Schengen Visa and in order to deliver efficient services for people travelling to Switzerland,” the Swiss embassy said in a statement.

The move authorises the French embassy in Yangon to deliver Schengen Visa C (short-stay visas) for a period not exceeding 90 days for a journey to Switzerland.

The Embassy of France will, however, not be able to issue visas for applications for short-stay visa connected to gainful employment (including drivers and journalists); applications for short stay visa connected to studies; applications for short stay visa connected to medical reason; applications of diplomatic and service passports holders that are not citizens of Myanmar; applications of non-Myanmar passport holders travelling to Switzerland for official reasons including participation at international conferences, the Swiss embassy said.
