WE are two families, planning to come to Switzerland between 14th march till 30th March 2019. WE are also planning to visit two days in Istanbul (means 13th and 14th March). Now we are planning to apply Schengen visa (we are resident of Saudi Arabia). I wants to know that if we book air tickets(14th march -Riyadh to Istanbul, 16th march-Istanbul to Zurich and finally 30th march-Basel to Riyadh) and apply visa for Schengen region, do they (Swiss) will make objection to get Turkish visa first?

Hi Asghar khan,

I don't know of any issues Switzerland would have with you having a Turkish visa. That being said the Saudi consulate in Switzerland would know more -we are not an official Swiss agency here.
