Switzerland is a landlocked country located at the crossroads of Western, Central, and Southern Europe. Its official name is the Swiss Confederation. It is a federal republic with federal authority located in Bern, comprising 26 cantons. Switzerland is bordered on the south by Italy, on the west by France, on the north by Germany, and on the east by Austria and Liechtenstein. The Swiss Plateau, the Alps, and the Jura are physically split, with 41,285 km2 (15,940 sq mi) and a land area of 39,997 km2 (15,443 sq mi). Even though the Alps cover most of the country, the Swiss population of 8.5 million people is centered largely on the plateau, home to the country’s greatest cities and economic hubs, including Zürich, Geneva, and Basel. Several international organizations have offices in these cities, including the World Trade Organization, the World Health Organization, the International Labour Organization, FIFA’s headquarters, the United Nations’ second-largest office, and the Bank for International Settlements’ main facility. These cities are also home to Switzerland’s major international airports.

When applying as a tourist, there are no restrictions on past trips. However, before applying for any tourist or visiting visa, we recommend that you visit at least 4 to 5 countries.
When applying as a single person, your bank account must have a minimum balance of BDT 700,000. However, if you apply with your family, you must have a minimum balance of BDT 15,00,000. In addition, your transactions should be consistent. Your account balance must show that you can cover the expense of your trip and that you have enough money in your account to return.
Educational qualifications are not required for tourist visas. Anyone with any educational background is eligible to apply.
The majority of embassies accept visa applications regularly. There is no time restriction for submitting a new application. However, we recommend that you apply again after a set length of time to determine the cause for the rejection.
An invitation is not mandatory for your application. Travelley cannot arrange an invitation for you or anyone. The invitation will be only beneficial for an applicant if the invitation is sent from the applicant’s family members or close friends. In any other case, having a hotel booking with a proper travel itinerary is more than enough to prove your accommodation arrangement during your trip.
Although visa approval or denial is based on the applicant’s profile, applying with relatives in specific countries may improve your chances. For example, applying for a Schengen or UK visa with family boosts your acceptance chances. On the other side, seeking a visa to Australia or Canada with family may reduce your chances of acquiring one.
Not at all. Travelley makes no assurances about obtaining a visa. The applicant’s profile determines whether they will be granted a visa. We can guarantee that your application file will be prepared with the utmost professionalism. So that the embassy has a comprehensive picture of your qualifications and application.
Yes. Most embassies will require a marriage certificate if you apply with your spouse. If your partner’s/name spouse appears in your passport-this might sometimes be waived.
No. Visa fees are always non-refundable, as well as our service charge.
