Welcome message by the Consul General

Dear Visitor 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Bengaluru. 

Switzerland is present in Bangalore since 2011, with its Consulate General and swissnex India. The Consulate General represents all aspects of Swiss interests, and fosters exchange between Switzerland and South India in areas such as trade & investment, tourism and culture. Being part of the Consulate General, swissnex India connects Switzerland and India in the fields of science, education, and innovation. More information about all our events can be found on the swissnex India website

All activities of the Consulate and of swissnex India are performed in close collaboration with the well-established "Swiss network in India", which includes the Embassy in New Delhi and its Climate Change and Development team, the Consulate General in Mumbai, the Swiss Business Hub Mumbai, Pro Helvetia New Delhi, Switzerland Tourism, the Swiss-Indian Chamber of Commerce, and the Honorary Consuls in Kolkata and Chennai. 

The Consulate General in Bengaluru does not offer any visa or consular services. We therefore ask all our Indian guests and travelers, wishing to visit the popular tourist destinations in Switzerland, to contact the Embassy of Switzerland in New Delhi. The full range of consular services to our Swiss compatriots is provided by the Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai.

On behalf of the entire team of the Consulate General/swissnex India, we would like to invite you to explore the websites of the Consulate General and swissnex India for further information on our activities. We’re looking forward to staying in touch with you, whether on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or hopefully at one of our events .

Yours sincerely

Sebastien Hug

Consul General of Switzerland in Bengaluru & CEO swissnex India
