    I would always always always check the embassy's website before planning any trips for any updates. Any third party data cannot be 100% relied on, nor they claim responsibility anyway.

    No visa is required for foreigners who have a valid U.S. green card (Permanent Resident Card, form I-551) and a valid national passport for tourism, visits, business or medical treatment for a stay up to 90 days.

    Yeah, but I think when Switzerland implements the Schengen treaty, that rule may not exist anymore :(

    People of Sitzerland is overvhelmingly against joining EU, so chill.

    I never said the EU. I said Schengen. You can opt into the Schengen Treaty without joining the EU. Iceland and Norway have done this, so... chill :)

    One can also join the EU and opt out of the Schengen treaty, the UK being a prime example.

    Public opinion in Switzwerland are vehemently against joining EU,adopting Euro and Shengan treaty. So chances of not GC holders not being able to travel without Visa in not under jeopardy anytime soon eventhough the Swiss government wants to be part of EU.

    I was there last week, they didn't even bother checking Passport and GC when entering via road from Italy. Perhaps you shouldn't comment on things you dont know?

    Hmm, then I guess someone at the BBC wrote this article after a night of heavy drinking: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/4612281.stm

    But then what's this: http://www.swissinfo.org/eng/swissinfo.html?siteSect=107&sid=5844873&cKey=1117980899000

    Hmm, two news sources, among others, with the same information? Isn't that interesting?

    Tell me what I don't know when you decide to start checking things out BEFORE you make comments...

    Not checking your documents does not mean that they cannot check documents for another person. Any entry applicant can be inspected by a Swiss official at random.

    So, just wondering about how Martha Stewart got her UK visa denied. Why did she need a visa to begin with, she's a US citizen.

    Same thing for Boy George.

    Being a convicted felon, she might not be eligible for the visa waiver.

    Not all UK citizens are eligible for the VWP. Considering that he's had legal troubles on both side of the Atlantic, I'd be shocked if he was eligible to be honest.

    Yusuf Islam AKA Cat Stevens was sent back to the UK from a US POE (Boston, I think).

    Well that's obvious reason regardless whether he knew who he was funding or not, especially after 9/11.
