You must produce evidence of sufficient financial means to support your stay in Switzerland. You can do this by providing bank statements and/or scholarship awards. The Canton of Zurich Migration Office requires confirmation from a bank with a branch in Switzerland (it doesn’t have to be a Swiss bank, but a foreign bank with a branch in Switzerland). As a rule, you should be able to provide evidence of having CHF 21'000 at the beginning of each year of your studies. You yourself must be the account holder and the account balance must be shown in Swiss Francs, Euros or US Dollars either on the bank statement or in an additional letter from the bank. Please note: Even big and internationally well-known banks are not accepted if they do not have a branch in Switzerland. Examples of accepted banks are: Citibank, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, etc. Supporting letters of parents are not accepted. Alternatively, you can hand in a so-called “guarantee declaration”.
