On 18 March 2020, the Swiss Federal Council decided, that entry at the Schengen external borders is generally prohibited with few exceptions. Switzerland follows the practice of the other Schengen states. Even at the present time, entry at the Schengen external borders is still restricted. For this reason, the Swiss government has not yet announced a resumption date for Schengen visa applications.
National visas are only issued in exceptional cases, for example to family members of Swiss citizens with a right of presence in Switzerland who require a visa as well as to specialists from the health sector and to students who have been accepted at an institution of higher education.
