How to Enter Liechtenstein

Do I need a passport or visa to enter?

Liechtenstein is part of the Schengen area, and extends visa-free entry to U.S. citizens for up to 90 days (consecutive or combined, within any six-month period) for tourist or business purposes. Your passport should be valid for at least six months beyond your period of stay. You need sufficient funds and a return airline ticket. For additional details about travel into and within Schengen countries, please see our Schengen fact sheet.

Liechtenstein does not have a bilateral agreement with the United States that would allow a U.S. citizen to stay longer than 90 days within the Schengen area in any 180-day period. Thus, when you travel to Liechtenstein, you should make sure that you have not yet exhausted the 90 days within a 180-day period of legal stay in the Schengen area since your first entry into the Schengen area, regardless of other bilateral agreements. If you exceed the 90-day stay, you risk being fined or even banned from entering the entire Schengen area again for six months or longer.

If you are planning to stay longer than the 90 days in Liechtenstein, make sure to obtain a visa from the Liechtenstein Embassy before you leave the United States. This will assist you in avoiding any problems when departing Liechtenstein.

Special Travel Circumstances in Liechtenstein

If you are going to participate in mountain activities (summer and winter) we strongly urge you to buy mountain search and rescue insurance. Alpine hazards such as avalanches and snow drifts, landslides and flooding, glacial crevasses, falling rocks, sun exposure, and sudden weather changes exist throughout the year. Follow the advice given by local authorities and guides, take note of weather forecasts and conditions, if possible, be in a team of two and inform someone of your plans.

Costs of search and rescue operations are your, and/or your family’s responsibility. Search and rescue insurance coverage is available in Liechtenstein and Switzerland and a membership can be purchased at any Swiss or Liechtenstein post office. The Swiss National Rescue organization (REGA) coordinates search and rescue operations throughout Europe. You may also purchase a membership by visiting their website for further information. (An iphone app is even available.) Search and Rescue coverage must not be confused with your travel insurance. REGA membership will not medevac you back to the United States (this insurance is solely for search and rescue operations within Europe).
