Visa and Requirements

Student Visa and Permit Requirements

All international students admitted to the American Institute of Applied Sciences in Switzerland will need to apply for a Type D visa. This visa allows them to obtain a student permit and reside legally in Switzerland. With this permit, students can freely travel across the Schengen zone and explore Europe.

Our Team is available to address any inquiries regarding visas and student permits. If assistance is needed, we can guide you through the application process via the Embassy of Switzerland in your country.


The procedures are different for EU/EFTA and non-EU/EFTA students.
