Swiss half-fare / General Pass (GA (SBB))

La lecture prend ~ 1 minute

The Swiss half-fare as well as the general pass (GA) are published by the Swiss Federal Railroads (SBB). With the half-fare you receive on all distances of the SBB as well as with nearly all other Swiss rails, ships, coaches and trams a ticket reduction of 50%. You find further information about the half-fare here.

However, with the GA you need no ticket on all distances of the SBB as well as with nearly all other Swiss rails, ships, coaches and trams. Besides, you receive discounts with many mountain railways. You find further information about the GA here.

For passport photographs for the half-fare or the general pass no same-strict demands exist like for biometric passport photos. Nevertheless, the SBB still requires compliance with certain requirements, which are available here.

It is important above all that the face is well recognizable and is not covered by something. Besides, one should always take the photo before a plain, best of all white background. If one orientates himself by the photograph sample tables for biometric passport photos, one is definitively on the sure side. This is in particular also valid, if the regulations for the half-fare or the general pass should change in future.

The adaptation to the classical passport photograph format can be carried out easily and free of charge by means of our passport photo generator.
