A checklist for your travel documents

1. Government-issued identification card or passport?

As an EU/Swiss citizen travelling within the Schengen area, you only require a valid identification card. If you are from another country, please carry a valid passport with you.

2. Read up on the entry and exit conditions of your destination

Please note that for entry and exit in some countries further documents such as visa, vaccination certificate or similar are required. As a passenger you are responsible for providing all required documentation. It is therefore important that you acquaint yourself on the entry and exit requirements of your destination country in advance. In the event of uncertainty, please contact the Foreign Ministry of your destination country and acquaint yourself with any country-specific requirements.

3. Take identification papers for infants and children

Please note that children and young persons must also present a valid identification document (child passport). In some countries infants, children and young persons under the age of 18 must in addition produce a completed authorisation form from their parent or legal guardian in order to be permitted to leave their home country. This regulation is for the wellbeing of the child and is a measure against child abduction.
