The Swiss Embassy in Ottawa is also responsible for the diplomatic relations with the Bahamas, whereas the consular relations with the Bahamas are within the competence of the Consulate general in Montreal.

The Embassy’s role is also to promote trade activities between Canada and Switzerland, in cooperation with the Swiss Business Hub Canada and with the General Consulates in Montreal and Vancouver.

Consular services which are provided by the Swiss Representations in Canada:

  • Registration and voting for Swiss citizens
  • Issue of Swiss passports
  • Registration of births, marriages, divorces and deaths
  • Legalisation of signatures on documents required by Swiss authorities
  • Assistance to Swiss citizens in case of accidents, deaths, serious illness, thefts and other hardship situations. Arrange for repatriation in case of urgent need
  • In case of arrest: visit as soon as possible, procuration of lawyer upon request, advice on local procedures, notification of next-of-kin if desired

The following persons should register with their local Swiss representation abroad:

  • Swiss citizens who intend to stay in the consular district for more than 12 months and who are no longer registered in Switzerland
  • Swiss citizens who acquire Swiss citizenship by birth, naturalization or adoption who already live in the consular district and are older than 18

The register provides a comprehensive picture of Swiss nationals living in the consular districts and includes the details required to fulfill official functions, such as issue new passports, register births, marriages, and so forth.

If a Swiss passport/identity card is lost or stolen, the nearest Swiss diplomatic or consular representation should be informed as soon as possible. One must also report a lost or stolen passport/identity card to the nearest police station and obtain a written police report. A copy must be submitted to the Swiss representation together with the attached "Declaration of Loss".

A temporary passport, which has a maximum validity of one year, may be issued in cases of emergency only. It must be returned to the issuing authority for cancellation after the travel is completed. The passport fee is currently CHF 100.00 for adults and children.

Changes in civil status (marital status, birth of children, death, name change, and so forth) must be communicated to the Swiss authorities. Failure to provide accurate documentation may impede future administrative procedures with the Swiss authorities and may even hinder the issuance of new identity documents.

Canada has concluded a bilateral agreement with one or more Schengen countries, allowing its citizens to stay longer than 90 days within 180 days in those countries only. However, Switzerland has not concluded such an agreement with Canada. For information on which Schengen States have these exceptional bilateral agreements, travelers must contact each individual country themselves. Any such agreement is of a strictly bilateral character, and does not alter the 90-days-within-180-days rule for the other Schengen countries, including Switzerland.

The time needed for a visa request to be processed may vary from case to case. It is therefore strongly recommended to take the necessary steps well in advance, so that the visa can be issued in the time required.

Short stay visas – Complete applications are in general processed within 15 days.

Long stay visas – Up to 4 months.

Visa for persons who have already received an authorization from a Swiss cantonal authority – Up to 15 days.

The fee must be paid either in cash, by certified cheque (made out to the competent Swiss Consulate General or Embassy) or money order when submitting the application. If the application is made by mail, a bank draft or money order is required. The fee will not be refunded if the visa is denied or the application withdrawn.
