Information on passport turnaround times
The current standard processing time is approximately 6 weeks.
A temporary passport can be issued on the day only in the case of an emergency situation (the death or serious illness of a family member).
In all other circumstances, you will have to wait a minimum of five working days to get a temporary passport. Valid proof of confirmed travel (e.g. airline tickets/email) must be presented in order for any application to be processed sooner than the standard turnaround. You may incur an additional fee. Please contact us immediately if you require a passport urgently.
We also provide assistance if you are on holiday in Switzerland or in Liechtenstein and your passport has been lost or stolen.
