Dear Visitor,

A warm Welcome to the official website of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai.

Switzerland has a long-standing presence in Mumbai and opened its first Consulate in this important financial and commercial center a century ago, in 1915. Since May 2017 the Swiss Business Hub India and Switzerland Tourism operate under the roof of the Consulate General, creating a single official Swiss platform in Mumbai.

The Consulate General represents all aspects of Swiss interests and promotes exchange in areas such as trade and investment, tourism, science, education and culture between Switzerland and Western- and Central India. These activities are performed in cooperation with a well-established Swiss network including the Embassy in New Delhi and the Consulate General in Bengaluru with its annex for science and education (swissnex).

In addition, we provide the full range of consular services to our Swiss compatriots living or travelling in Western-, Central- and South India. 

Switzerland is a popular tourist destination for Indian travelers. The visa center at the Swiss Embassy in New Delhi, in cooperation with the many visa acceptance centers in all major Indian cities of our outsourcing partner VFS, guarantees applicants an efficient service. 

I thank you for your interest in Switzerland and trust that you will find the information you are looking for on our website and through the links featured here. Please don't hesitate to contact us for questions or comments. We will be glad to assist you.

Yours sincerely,

Othmar Hardegger

Consul General
