Ermachtigung Zur Visumerteilung [Received bill to pay for permit - Not yet in CH]

Hello,
My student national visa D was issued a couple of weeks ago and I collected my passport with the visa from the consulate. However, I received a letter from Migrationsamt of Zürich called "Ermachtigung Zur Visumerteilung (Einreiseerlaubnis)" with a voucher of 95 CHF to be paid. So what am I supposed to do with this document ? I would appreciate any guidance.
Thanks.

You can take the pink slip to the post office to pay the 95 CHF for the permit.

I already got my visa, it is stamped in my passport. Anyway, do you think I can pay it when I arrive in Zürich this August ?

Re: Ermachtigung Zur Visumerteilung

Because I'm pernickety - usually the word 'voucher' means ''they" are giving/promising "you" money. Knowing the working of all Swiss Authorities, it is much more likely to be the other way round.
Maybe 'pay-in slip' is the more appropriate term. As the other replies say, pay it.

In at least some cantons (e.g. Basel), you will receive a permit, followed by the bill. It should have a date when you need to pay it by (often 14 or 30 days after it was issued). Check this, your arrival might just be in time.

If you are late, they may just send a reminder, but it may have an added fee.

If the due date is before you arrive in Switzerland, then contact the issuer. They may give you more time or an IBAN and/or other details to pay with your online banking (if you already have a Swiss bank account then you should already be able to pay online with the details on the payment slip).

Maybe contact the consulate too. You may be able to pay there.

Understand that the visa in your passport is not your Swiss student permit. That you have to collect once you arrive in Switzerland. The visa only allows you entry into Switzerland long term, i.e. for more than the 90 days allowed as a tourist. When you get here you go to the cantonal migration office with your enrollment info, rental contract if you have one, birth certificate, passport and some passport photos of yourself and that will start the process of getting your pre-approved permit issued to you. It'll take a few weeks.

That payment is probably for the visa itself and you'll have another bill later when your permit is issued as that will be for more than 95 francs. Permit alone is 95 and then there's the biometric info costs which is another 20 so 115 at least.
