Do you need to have a passport photo or will a valid passport be enough to purchase swiss travel car

New Author


Having issues purchasing a Swiss pass online. If I do it in person, will I need my passport and a passport photo?

Thank you/Merci!



Hello @Katelyn 

Thank you for your query. 

Can you please specify your request? Which offer do you want to buy online? Normally you have all the information listed on the website.

I wish you a nice day.

Kind regards, AferditaH


I'm trying to purchase a Swiss Travel Pass. Since I wasn't able to do it online, I want to ensure I have everything needed to do it in person. The post mention something about a passport photo, however I am not sure if that's only referencing our passport or if we need to bring an additional passport photo (i.e. just a photo meeting passport parameters).



Hello @Katelyn 

The Swiss Travel Pass is available as an e-ticket. You do not need a passport photo for this. When purchased at the counter, the Swiss Travel Pass is printed on security paper. No passport photo is required for this. 

I wish you a nice day.

Kind regards, AferditaH
