I hate to make a whole topic about this... I am traveling to Italy and am thinking about driving across the border to Switzerland. I hold a US passport and will be using it during my journey. If I drive (with friends who hold an Italian passport) across the border to Switzerland will mine be stamped? Some of my friends live in the Como area so it is near the border. I know it is supposed to be stamped but I have been "cheated" out of stamps in the Schengen area before....will Switzerland not stamp me as well?

I crossed into Switerland by land from France, Germany and Austria about a dozen times this month holding an Indian passport and on not a single occasion was my passport even looked at, let alone stamped. The only exception was crossing from France to Switz at Basle-Mulhouse Euroairport.

I just travelled from France to Switzerland last week on TGV. There were some police (Swiss I think) that were on the train for people that had materials to declare, but they didn't stamp a thing as far as passports go. I wanted a Swiss stamp on my passport, oh well. Good Luck!
