Embassy of Switzerland in Thailand
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.
Consular services on appointment only
Due to the new COVID-19 outbreak and the measures imposed by the Thai authorities, the consular section of the Embassy is only open for visitors with prior appointments. Appointments for consular services can be requested online.
Automation of the life certificate process for AHV/IV pensioners
From 1.1.2022 on, Swiss nationals resident abroad will in general not receive an application for a life certificate anymore. The condition for this is that they are registered with a Swiss representation in their country of residence. The information is sent directly to the Swiss Compensation Office by the Register of the Swiss Abroad.
Swiss nationals who are not registered with a Swiss representation will continue to receive applications for life certificates.
In exceptional cases, registered persons may nevertheless receive such an application. In this case, the persons concerned must complete this document and have it confirmed in order to prevent their pension from being suspended.
The Embassy of Switzerland in Bangkok and its Regional Consular Center is pleased to inform the registered Swiss nationals about the expansion of our online services. The following consular services can now also be ordered and paid for by credit card at the FDFA online counter:
- Certificate of nationality and registration
