Please note that citizens of some countries are required to obtain a visa in order to enter and spend any time in Switzerland. The visa must be requested at least three (3) weeks before the date of beginning of the meeting and obtained from the office (embassy or consulate) representing Switzerland in your country or, if there is no such office in your country, from the one that is closest to the country of departure.
If problems are encountered, the Union can, at the official request of the administration or entity you represent, approach the competent Swiss authorities in order to facilitate delivery of the visa but only within the stipulated deadline. Any such official request must specify the name and function, date of birth, number, date of issue and expiry of passport, of the person for whom the visa is requested and should be submitted to the ITU Secretariat by fax to No. +41 22 730 6627. Request, signed by a responsible officer, must be accompanied by photocopy of passport.
The secretariat will be unable to assist with incomplete requests and/or requests received after 13 April 2012.
