My philippino wife had to apply for schengen visa to visit europe with me. Here is what she had to do:

1. Identify the european (EU) country you will first arrive or travel to enter the E.U.; (e.g. germany, france or italy)

2. Go to that country's embassy in Iran, e.g. germany, france or italy.

3. Take your Iran psspt to the embassy and fill out their form and pay them, and meet their consular staff.

4. You will then have Schengen visa to travel to ANY E.U country in the Schengen group. Very easy.

Hi MaryamHgh and welcome to MySwissAlps!

I am not aware of any invitation letter for Visa help. But, if an invitation helps to get a Schengen Visa then the Zermatt tourist office should know. They also know where to get a guide for the Matterhorn climb. A guide is highly recommended, perhaps even obligated. www.zermatt.ch

Good luck!

I don't know about any necessary money in your bank account but it sometimes is a requirement that they know you have money to leave Switzerland and/or support yourself while there. The Swiss embassy can give you details.

Schengen Visa and money in your bank account:

One often has to show money in a bank account for a visa. I had to do so 50 years ago when I applied for Iranian visa. My philippino friends travelling to australia solve this by having a 'communal' $10,000 which is moved from bank to bank as a visa is required.
