Coronavirus: documentation renewal

The Federal Police extended the deadline for renewal of expired documents during the pandemic to September 16, 2021. This means that if your document expired on any date after March 16, 2020, it is still valid for all purposes and must be accepted by public agencies and the private sector. This extension can be seen by clicking here.

If they are not accepting your documentation or if you need further guidance, please contact your nearest UNHCR partner organization by clicking here.
