Regional Consular Centre of the Embassy of Switzerland in Sweden renders consular services for the Baltic states

Consular services for Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia are handled at the Regional Consular Centre of the Swiss embassy in Stockholm, Sweden. The centre is responsible for the Nordic and Baltic states since 2015.

Most of the consular services available to the Swiss diaspora in the Baltic countries are available by correspondence, thanks to the well-developed range of services. The consular centre in Stockholm provides the few remaining services that require a personal visit, such as registering biometric data for identity documents.

To minimise the cost to the person concerned, identity documents can be processed at any Swiss representation offering consular services or a cantonal passport office in Switzerland.

In addition, the FDFA has permanently expanded its online support. Please do not hesitate to contact the Consular Directorate's helpline in Bern for more information on +41-800-24-7-365 (available 24 hours every day of the year).
