Traveling to Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein does not issue its own visas. As there are no border controls between Liechtenstein and Switzerland, without exception the same visa requirements apply to travelers to Liechtenstein as they do to travelers to Switzerland. Please contact the Swiss representation in your US consular district for further information.

Switzerland is represented in Chicago for matters related to the issuance of Schengen visas for residents of some US states through the Consulate General of Lithuania. However, this only applies to the issuance of Schengen visas for Switzerland and not for Liechtenstein. All persons who require a visa to travel to Liechtenstein must do so through the Swiss representation in your consular district.

Moving to Liechtenstein

According to the decision of the European Economic Area (EEA) Joint Committee, Liechtenstein can give out a certain number of residence permits (direct issue). There also exists a system similar to the US Green Card Lottery on the basis of which residence is granted to a certain number of economically active and non-active persons. Currently only EEA citizens are eligible to enter the drawing. For both the lottery and the direct issue by the government there is a quota for the maximum number of permits issued.
