Important notice: Starting 1st of June 2016, applicants who wish to book an appointment for visa application submission from June 15th 2016 onwards should register and book on the following link: https://ch.tlscontact.com/th/BKK/

TLScontact Center will be closed on May 5th and 20th 2016

Starting from November 14th 2013, all diplomatic representations of the Schengen member states in Thailand have to capture the biometric data (finger scans and facial image) of persons applying for a Schengen visa. The data will be kept in the Visa Information System (VIS) for 5 years.

For further information: https://www.sem.admin.ch/dam/data/sem/einreise/vis/leaflet-vis-en.pdf

If your fingerprints have not been collected yet, personal appearance when applying for a Schengen visa is mandatory.

If your finger scans were collected within the last 59 months and a visa with the mention "VIS" has been granted, then you won’t have to give new fingerprints for your next visa application(s) and personal appearance is not necessary. Please provide copy of your visa sticker issued after […] with the “VIS” mention.

You will still have to appear in person to give your fingerprints in case the previously collected fingerprints prove to be of insufficient quality. Personal appearance and fingerprint scan is not necessary for children under the age of 12.

The Swiss representation still reserves the right to ask the applicant to appear for a personal interview after checking his application.

Note: Wearing contact lenses altering the appearance of your eye is strictly prohibited during the biometric data capture (color contact lenses, magnifying contact lenses).

To check whether you need to apply through the TLScontact Visa Center or directly at the Embassy of Switzerland in Thailand, please check on Jurisdiction page.

From May 19th, 2014, all electronics devices (mobile phones, tablets, laptops…) will be forbidden within the TLScontact center. A locker room will be at your disposal at the entrance of the center.

Please kindly note that pictures submitted must be complying with the ICAO standards. An ICAO compliant photo-booth is at your disposal within the TLScontact Center.
