Indian national arriving at Basel Mulhouse Freiburg airport  (13 Answers)


Wondered if anyone can help me: I am an Indian national living in the UK (with a Highly Skilled Migrant permit, which allows me to enter Switzerland).

I plan to go on holiday to Switzerland in Sept and have booked a flight to Basel Mulhouse. I have just realised that this airport is actually located in France and borders with Switzerland.

My UK work permit allows me to enter Switzerland without the requirement of a visa, but to enter France I would need a Schengen visa/Airport Transit visa.

Does anyone know whether it is possible to enter directly into Switzerland at the Basel Mulhouse airport without passing the French border/customs?

I have contacted the Swiss embassy but they have just told me to contact the French embassy :( Nobody seems to be able to give me a clear answer on this.

Any info would be much appreciated!!

coach trips to scenic parts of switzerland  (1 Answer)

Are there any organised coach trips to places of interest in Switzerland for those of us who do not drive and would prefer something more organised than finding our own way? I live in Basel.

For example - coach trip to somewhere where you can go up in a cable car to a waterfall or scenic area.

If at all possible an English speaking company would be perfect!

Home stay for Jewelry & Watch Fair 3/29-4/30

I am coming to the Basel Jewelry & Watch Fair in the end of March 2005 through the first week of April. My 35 year old nephew will be with me---we would love to rent rooms in a house or apartment not too far from the Messeplex (Fair park) or on a convenient tram or bus line. I am 52, female, pretty well traveled, and love jazz and world music. This will be my nephew's first trip to Europe and I am hoping to stay with a nice family that speaks fair english. My french is ok for getting to the bathroom or the police (!), german non-existant, but I do ok in spanish. Any tips or help anyone might have would be greatly appreciated, along with rates. Thanks Denise
