It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Embassy of Switzerland in Canberra. Together with the Consulate General in Sydney and our Honorary Consuls in Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Port Moresby, our mission is to enhance the multifaceted relations of Switzerland with Australia as well as with Kiribati, Nauru, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. This includes the deepening of our political cooperation both bilaterally and in the field of regional and multilateral diplomacy, mutually beneficial economic relations, an intense cooperation in the fields of science and education as well as cultural exchanges of many sorts.
While the focus of our Embassy in Canberra is on the relations between governments and institutions, the main task of the Consulate General in Sydney is providing consular services to the Swiss citizens and other nationals in the 6 countries mentioned. All services in relation to consular affairs are exclusively available at the Consulate General in Sydney. For trade activities between Switzerland and Australia, the Trade Point based in the Consulate General is a great asset to effectively complement our efforts in this large, dynamic part of the world. Also under the roof of the Consulate General is the Office of Switzerland Tourism, working with local travel agents to promote the beauty of Switzerland.
This website offers a broad range of information on our activities as well as links to our partners such as the Swiss associations and clubs in our region. We hope you enjoy visiting our website and find it useful. Do not hesitate to contact us with suggestions, observations or questions. We look forward to working with you.
