Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai

The Consulate General is responsible for the Swiss community living in the provinces of Anhui, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and the municipality of Shanghai. The Swiss living in and around Shanghai have regular occasions to meet and socialize at various events organised by Swiss organisations in the city. There are currently about 1000 citizens registered at our Consulate General, most of them in Shanghai itself, which makes it a lively and interesting community to be part of.
