Passports and visas
If you are a British Citizen or British Subject with Right of Abode in the United Kingdom, you will not need a visa to enter Switzerland. Other British passport holders should check entry requirements with the nearest Swiss Diplomatic mission.
Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required.
Please ensure your passport is kept safe. In case of lost or stolen passports, please contact the British Embassy in Berne.
Adequate travel insurance should be obtained prior to travelling.
Remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) but also take out travel insurance, even if you're only going for one night - it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties.
Switzerland is generally a safe country but common sense precautions should be taken when in crowded city areas and on local transport as pick pockets do operate. This includes keeping valuables safe and bags secure and preferably leaving all valuables in your Hotel Safety Deposit Box.
