Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Guangzhou. 

The relations between Switzerland and China are close, multifaceted and expanding rapidly. For me and my entire team it is a special privilege to facilitate exchanges between Switzerland and the dynamic southern China region.

The Consulate General represents all aspects of Swiss interests and fosters exchanges in areas such as trade & investment, tourism, culture, science, innovation and education. These activities are performed in conjunction with the well-established network of official Swiss representations in China and in partnership with the Swiss Business Hub, swissnex, and Pro Helvetia.

We provide the full range of consular services to our Swiss compatriots throughout the jurisdiction of the Consulate General in Guangzhou which includes the provinces of Guangdong, Fujian, Hainan, Hunan, Jiangxi and the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. The issuance of Schengen visa to Switzerland is another essential task of this representation. As a matter of fact, my country is a popular destination for Chinese travellers.

If you require information on any of the areas we serve or would like to learn more about Switzerland and its relations with China please feel free to browse this portal. You will find a wealth of relevant data and useful links. Please follow us on WeChat and do not hesitate to contact us if you require further assistance.

Yours sincerely,

Martin Bienz
Consul General
