Swiss Passport



in Switzerland



A Swiss passport is the passport issued to citizens of Switzerland to facilitate international travel. For traveling inside almost all of Europe, Swiss citizens can use an identity card.

The first Swiss passports were issued in 1915. Those were not yet in the famous red colour, but were bound in a grey-green cover. The famous red Swiss passport was created in 1959. Until 1985 the Swiss passport was only printed in the national languages of the time: French, German, Italian; English was included in addition to the aforementioned national languages. Romansh was added in the later Pass 85 after it was declared the fourth Swiss national language following a referendum. The ordering of the languages was then changed to German, French, Italian, Romansh and English.
