1. Re: VISA for Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg aiport

The "Basel" airport is shared by three countries:

Switzerland (Basel), France (Muhlouse) and Germany (Freibourg). The airport itsself is on french soil.

There is transit road from Basel to the airport also on french soil but "belonging" and being administrated from Switzerland.

This all means that all though you will be in reality in France you will have never left switzerland and therefor logically you do not need a visa to go from Zurich to basel and from there to the airport.

In the airport since you are living from Basel, again you do not need a Visa.

You could ask easyjet though to be 100% sure.

Your ticket back writes from Basel right?

Tak
