As the official representation of Switzerland, the Embassy covers all matters concerning diplomatic relations between the two countries. It represents Swiss interests in the areas of political, economic and financial affairs, legal arrangements, science, education and culture.

Tasks of the Embassy

Important notice for visa customers

Due to the high number of visa applications, it can take up to four weeks or more before an appointment is available to submit the visa application to the Embassy.

The Embassy therefore urges you to make your appointment as soon as possible. An appointment to submit a visa application can be made via www.swiss-visa.ch, as early as 6 months before the planned trip to the Schengen area."

If you are unable to attend, the Embassy kindly asks you to cancel your appointment so that other people can benefit from it.
