Entry Visa in Montreal

Hi Guys,

I have received my authorization letter and want to apply for entry visa in Montreal. I am currently in Toronto and so I would be applying by post. I have to make a money order. Can you tell me onto whose name should I made it to .

It says "Alternatively, the fee may be paid by money order (made out to the competent Consulate General or the Embassy of Switzerland) by mail"

Do they mean the consulate name I am applying to ? or just simply whatever is quoted above ?

Can you tell me which of these is correct ?

1) Competent Consulate General
2) Embassy of Switzerland
3) Consulate General of Switzerland Montreal
4) Montreal Consulate General

I am trying to get a money order in CanadaPost and they have a character limit to 24 characters including space. So 3 is out of the question. I wrote to the montreal guys but no reply yet.

Is there any other place I can get a money order ( I thought these things no longer exist :P)

1 and 2 are just directly from the quote on the website :P

What do you mean by "Isn´t their something written at the bottom of the letter." ? You mean the authorization letter. I was following isntructions from the montreal website.

This is the snap shot at the bottom of the authorization letter. Sorry have only it as an image.

Re: Entry Visa in Montreal

This is another snap shot of the message. It says New Delhi. Does this mean I have to apply in New Delhi ?

Re: Entry Visa in Montreal

Hey,

I went through that exact procedure just a few weeks ago, the instructions are below:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for your e-mail.

In order to issue the visa we kindly ask you to send us the following documents:

- original passport
- 1 passport sized photo
- copy of your passport (the page with the picture)
- copy of the authorization letter from the Canton
- CAD 90.00 payable by money-order or bank draft on the name of the Swiss Consulate
- A prepaid envelope for ex. Express Post, Fedex, Purolator, TNT etc.

The delay for issuing the visa is 2 days plus mailing delay.

It should be addressed to the following:

Consulate general of Switzerland
Visa section
1572 avenue Dr. Penfield, Montréal QC H3G 1C4
Fax: +1 514 932 9028
mon.visa@eda.admin.ch

Re: Entry Visa in Montreal

As for the money order,

your local bank should allow you to make one. I did mine with TD Canada Trust

Thank you for the reply. I went to the bank they said they only issue bank drafts. I did not know they are equivalent to money orders.

Did you address the bank draft to consulate general of switzerland montreal ?

Yes, I did a bank draft to the consulate general. I also found the initial instructions for authorization to be a little confusing.

I am sorry to aks you again because I had a problem with the word count when getting a money order from canada post.

So you used this right ? “ Consulate General of Switzerland Montreal” and not just “Consulate General” or “Consulate General of Switzerland “

Including the mail timings how soon did you get it ? 2 weeks ?

I sent it in a Canada Post registered mail, and enclosed was expedited mail. I shipped it out on a Wednesday, and received my VISA on the following Tuesday.

Re: Entry Visa in Montreal

Like a cheque you need to address it in a manner that would be accepted by the PO/Bank when the consulate submits it for payment. Something unambiguous.

Swiss Consulate Montreal would work (24 characters) as would Consulat Suisse à Montréal

They do not want documents that are blank or to ‘Cash’, or to “Switzerland”, or the consule or Ambassador.

KISS
