Important message to all Swiss Citizens residing in Ontario

Dear Fellow Citizens:

Due to the success of last year’s edition, this Consulate General is pleased to inform you that we will once again organize our “Swiss consular days” with the presence of the mobile biometric passport station in the Greater Toronto area at the beginning of October this year. As you might already know, since the introduction of the Biometric passport, applicants must present themselves in person to record the biometric data: a photograph of the applicant’s face and two fingerprints. The mobile station allows us to come to your area and offer this opportunity to those who meet the criteria as set out below and who wish to have their biometric data recorded directly at the selected location.

If you are interested, you may apply for your passport by following the procedures, as outlined for Swiss nationals living abroad, on either of these websites: www.schweizerpass.ch or www.passeportsuisse.ch. When applying for the passport, please make sure to mention “Toronto” in the Remarks section (Bemerkungen, Remarques, Osservazioni). Your application must be submitted by August 14th, 2015 at the latest. Should your civil status not be updated in our registry or should you have changed name/s, we cannot consider your application for this service in Toronto, as your dossier will first have to be updated and confirmed by the Swiss authorities in Switzerland.

Please note that this invitation is addressed specifically to holders of Swiss passports which will expire within the next 12 months. The number of available appointment time slots is limited.

If you wish to receive further information about our consular services, please visit our website or send us an e-mail to Mon.Vertretung@eda.admin.ch

Sincerely,

Consulate General of Switzerland in Montreal
