Travel VISA Requirements for France and Switzerland

It is the delegate’s responsibility to apply for travel visas for the countries they intend to visit.

GlobalSkin 2017, a two and a half-day conference, is taking place in Ferney-Voltaire, France. Please note that the airport in Geneva has an exit to France and an exit to Switzerland as it sits directly on the border of these two countries. Our conference is taking place on the French side in Ferney-Voltaire, however, some social events may take place in Geneva, Switzerland.
