Dear friends of Switzerland

Together with my colleagues I welcome you to the official website of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Cape Town.

This Swiss representation covers the three Cape Provinces (Western, Northern and Eastern Cape) as well as Namibia for consular matters.

Our online platform offers a broad range of information and will give you useful advice about travelling, studying, working and living in Switzerland. Swiss citizens residing in the region will find useful information about consular services and administrative procedures as well as contacts of Swiss clubs and Swiss associations.

Certain services in favor of the Swiss nationals are available through a recently launched online portal which requires however an additional secured identification and access. For our fellow Swiss citizens visiting the Cape Provinces and Namibia, the Consulate General in Cape Town can assist them with guidance and information in case of misfortune or any other challenging issue.

Apart of Consular affairs our task is to facilitate exchange in the fields of politics, economics and trade. We foster, together with the Embassy of Switzerland in Pretoria, collaboration in the areas of science, technology and education with the aim of strengthening cooperation between the two countries in terms of research and innovation. The Consulate General further promotes and disseminates Swiss arts and culture in the host country.

This website is one among a lot of different instruments to obtain useful information and to communicate and get in touch with us. I trust you will find this online platform helpful and interesting. Do not hesitate to contact us with suggestions, observations, comments or questions.

Thank you for your visit.

Andreas M. Maager
Consul General of Switzerland
