Switzerland still has its own currency, the Swiss Franc, which is more valuable than the Euro, US Dollar or the British Pound. Switzerland’s main industries are both banking and tourism. Because of its banks, Switzerland is one of the richest countries in the world.
Entry Requirements for Switzerland
For entry into Switzerland, depending on your country of origin, you may or may not need a visa to enter Switzerland. Citizens of EU member countries as well as the United States and Canada do not need a visa to enter Switzerland.
The only requirement the above mention citizens need is to have a valid passport that is valid up to three months after the end of your intended stay in the country. If you are from the United States, Canada or any of the EU member nations, you can stay in Switzerland for up to three months without a visa.
If you are a citizen of another country, but are a legal resident of the United States and hold a US Green Card, you are also not required to have a visa to enter Switzerland. You will need to follow the same requirements as those of a US citizen.
If your country of origin is not the United States, Canada, or the EU member states, check with your local Swiss consulate or embassy to find out about visa requirements for your country.
