I wish you a warm welcome to the website of the Embassy of Switzerland in Jakarta.

Switzerland and Indonesia have enjoyed excellent and friendly relations since the very first days of Indonesian independence. Their geographic distance notwithstanding, the two countries share the common feature of being multicultural societies - a fact that is proudly seen as an extraordinary asset, both by Indonesia and Switzerland. The local Swiss community - which at present consists of about 1000 members - feels very much at home in Indonesia.

The Embassy of Switzerland in Jakarta is equally in charge of the relations with the Democratic Republic of Timor Leste.

The website is designed to help you to obtain information about Switzerland as well as the activities of the Embassy. Moreover, it contains information about travelling to Switzerland (visa requirements, tourism, studying) and to Indonesia. Much relevant information for Swiss nationals is also available. A special section contains information about the economy and trade promotion. A rich choice of web links is given about Swiss Authorities, media and culture.

I wish you a pleasant exploration of the site. For any further information, please contact us at:
