Dear Friends of Switzerland
Welcome to the website of the Honorary Consulate General of Switzerland in the Kingdom of Bahrain!
Member of the Arab League and the Gulf Cooperation Council, the Kingdom of Bahrain occupies a strategic location, which made it earn at all times a prominent role as a hub of regional trade and cultural, as well as commercial. Cradle of ancient Dilmun civilization to which a remarkable museum is dedicated in Manama, Bahrain still retains a special charm combined with tradition and modernism. Appreciated financial capital and center of international conferences, the City of Manama annually hosts many cultural and sporting events, such as the F1 Grand Prix. With its undeniable afar success, Bahrain is still facing the long-standing problem of the not so easy coexistence of the two essential religious components of Sunni and Shiite. Violent clashes remain so recurrent. Within this context, it is recommended that passing by Swiss citizens are informed before departure and during their stay on the situation and possible places to avoid. The "Travel Advisory" issued by the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs should be scrupulously observed. In case of emergency, the Swiss Embassy in Kuwait from which the Honorary Consulate General of Manama depends can be reached on mobile number 00965 – 9936 4712.
