In many countries outside Europe, students will be required to submit an application for a study visa to Switzerland. This application should be done at the nearest Swiss Embassy or Consulate and can take up to 12 weeks.
Our Admissions Officers will be happy to speak to you about your individual situation. If you are applying through IMI representatives, they will advise you on the details of the visa application process pertaining to your country of application.
All efforts will be made to assist in the processing of your visa application but, please note, the final decision on the study visa issue rests with the Swiss authorities. You will be informed by our Admissions Officers as soon as your study visa has been approved.
Since the Schengen agreement of 2009 it is now easy for any student at IMI to travel within Europe. This allows all B- or C- Permit holders to take short holidays in the Schengen countries, including Germany, Austria and France without a visa.
Nevertheless, to avoid disappointment, we always advise students to research entry visa regulations by contacting the Embassy of the country they wish to visit.
You will be required to carry Passports and Swiss Permits. For more information please e-mail us on email@example.com and one of our Admissions Officers will contact you to discuss your situation personally.
