Switzerland to Issue Visas for Estonia in Palestine


No. 405-E

Starting in 2011, Switzerland will be representing Estonia in Ramallah for the issuing of Schengen visas in the areas of the Palestinian Authority.

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet stated that these kinds of agreement make it easier for people to visit Estonia. “Our goal is that Estonia would be represented as broadly as possible all over the world,” said Foreign Minister Paet. “We also want for the visa application process to be more client-friendly and less complicated,” Paet added.

Estonia has concluded representation agreements for the issuing of Schengen visas with Austria, Spain, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, France, Germany, Finland, Slovenia, Denmark, Hungary and Switzerland. Estonia is currently being represented in 82 countries.

Applications for short-term visas, transit visas, and airport transit visas can be submitted to the representations of countries representing Estonia. To apply for a long-tern visa it is still necessary to go to the nearest Estonian representation.
