Welcome

Dear visitor, 

Thank you for visiting the website of the Embassy of Switzerland in Abuja!

As the Ambassador of Switzerland to Nigeria, Niger, Libya and Chad, as well as Permanent Representative to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), I warmly welcome you to our website.

Nigeria and Switzerland may seem like worlds apart, but they share a number of features, not least a federal political system. Another shared feature is the diversity that characterizes Nigeria and Switzerland: With all sense of proportion (Switzerland's population is 8 million compared to Nigeria's 180 million), we are a country with four languages and several religious groups, united by a shared national identity and a will to remain together as a nation, fostered by a political system that stimulates consensus, non-discrimination, tolerance, responsible citizenship, and accountability.

You will find much more details about Switzerland and our intense relationship with Nigeria on this website, as well as information about the Embassy in Abuja, Consular activities, and Visas.

I hope you will find the information you are looking for. If you have any questions, queries or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact us. All staff of the Embassy is here to assist you.

Georg Steiner
Ambassador
