Swiss Warn Reich Jews on Visas

Download PDF for this date

The Swiss Consulate here issued a new warning to Jews that they must have visas to enter Switzerland either as immigrants or transit visitors. The consulate pointed out that Switzerland was only a place of transit and that immigrants were forbidden to engage in trade. It also explained that participation in real estate profits or a share in Swiss business did not give the participants the right of residence.
