I would like to ask, I have an Italian issued Shengen Visa and plans to stay in Italy for the most of our stay in Europe but I have found a very cheap ticket to Switzerland. Can i first enter Switzerland before Italy? I plan to stay overnight to have a side trip to Jungfrau. Which documents should I provide the immigration to justify?

Thanks in advance !!!!! :)

Hi shayken and Welcome to MySwissAlps

Switzerland is a member of the Schengen Area so I would say you should be good to go. You might just want to confirm with the airline you are flying with.

Hi Shayken-

Keep an eye on the weather. If there are thick clouds around the Jungfrau, that expensive trip is less enticing. ngfraujoch
