Dear citizens of Kyrgyzstan, dear Swiss citizens, dear colleagues,
I would like to personally welcome you to the website of the Swiss Embassy in Bishkek.
I have just arrived in Kyrgyzstan and I am eager to discover this beautiful country, to meet its people and to get acquainted with its cultures and traditions. I had the pleasure to visit Kyrgyzstan a few times in the past and I was impressed by the hospitality and kindness of its people. It is a privilege to be posted here and to contribute to tighten the relations between Switzerland and the Kyrgyz Republic.
Kyrgyzstan is a priority country for the Swiss international cooperation. The Swiss cooperation program focuses on four main domains of intervention: health, employment and economic development, governance and decentralization, water and climate change. The Swiss development cooperation has been active in Kyrgyzstan since 1993. Thanks to strong partnerships and trust relations with many partners, in particular the government of Kyrgyzstan, the communities, NGOs, UN Agencies, regional development banks and other donor countries, we could make a difference in particular in supporting the government reform agenda and in improving the life of vulnerable people.
If you consult the website of our Embassy, you will find lots of information about the Swiss development program in the Kyrgyz Republic, about the projects we financed and the partners we are working with.
The Swiss Embassy has a consular department, issuing biometric Schengen visas to Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, France and Finland. Our consular team is pleased to provide quality and timely services to its clients.
I would like to encourage you to consult our website, which provides useful information about Switzerland and its activities in the Kyrgyz Republic. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. The team of our Embassy will be pleased to help you with any additional information you might need.
Ambassador of Switzerland to the Kyrgyz Republic
