The Consulate General of Switzerland in Dubai will be Switzerland’s only visa processing centre in the United Arab Emirates from May 1st. In future the Swiss Consulate General in Dubai will accept visa applications for short and long term visas to Switzerland from all UAE Nationals and Residents. All decisions on processing and issuance of a visa will be solely with the Consulate General. Switzerland and the United Arab Emirates have concluded negotiations for a visa exemption agreement for UAE-diplomatic, service and special passports. Until the pending agreement is signed by both parties, the Embassy in Abu Dhabi will continue to process Schengen visa applications for holders of those passports.
