Dear Visitor

Hei and welcome to the website of the Embassy of Switzerland in Norway!

Whether you are a Swiss tourist visiting Norway, a Swiss citizen residing in this State or the representative of a Swiss company interested or involved in this country, you will find here useful information on different aspects of the friendly and long-lasting relation between Switzerland and the Kingdom of Norway. The two countries share many values such as democracy, rules-based order, human rights, solidarity or protection of the environment and are often like-minded.

Switzerland is present in Oslo since 1847 and Norway in Switzerland since 1906. These respective presences took the form of embassies as we know them today in 1955 for the Norwegian embassy in Bern and in 1957 for the Swiss embassy in Oslo.

As official representation of Switzerland to Norway, this embassy covers all matters concerning diplomatic relations between the two countries. It represents Switzerland’s interests in the areas of political, economic and financial affairs, international law issues, science, education and culture. You will also discover that this Embassy pursue similar objectives in Iceland.

During my assignment, I will strive to maintain and develop the existing ties, to further strengthen the bilateral cooperation, to promote Switzerland’s interest in various domains and to protect Swiss citizens if needed…and I will do so as the first Swiss woman ambassador to the Kingdom of Norway and Iceland.
