Due to the threatening security situation in Kyiv, the Swiss Embassy is temporarily closed.

Swiss nationals who need assistance can contact the FDFA Helpline by e-mail or telephone. Please inform the Helpline when you leave the country or when you move to a different location in Ukraine.

Switzerland has limited or no means of providing emergency assistance.
