Visitors visa for my parents (India)

Hello Friends,

Hope all are safe and doing good

My question is related to visitors visa for my parents.

I am from India and I live in Arbon (Thurgau) on a B permit. I live with my wife (also from India)

My parents wants to visit me and stay here (not permanent) for few months.

What are the rules? what is the procedure? How long does it take? maximum how many days they can stay? and is the rules different from Kanton to kanton?

My wife is pregnant and my parents also looking forward to stay to see the baby.

Sorry for so many questions at a time.

Thank you in advance for your answers.

They must apply for Type C visas which would allow them to be here for up to 90 days.

Re: Visitors visa for my parents (India)

No idea I’m afraid, but my Indian colleagues never had a problem with their parents having extended stays.
Is there an ‘Indians in Switzerland’ Facebook group or similar?
Good luck!

Apply for normal Schengen Tourist Visa at the nearest Swiss Embassy / Consulate through the nearest VFS GLOBAL office in India.

Here the official Swiss website:

Just make sure that they can enter the country, afaik India is on the "red" list still but entry should probably be possible if your parents are fully vaccinated
