Honorary representations

The honorary consulates support the Swiss representations in safeguarding Switzerland’s interests and in emergencies involving Swiss citizens abroad. In an emergency the representation responsible (embassy or consulate-general) must be contacted immediately.

The Honorary Consulates provide assistance and support to the Embassy and the two Consulates General, contributing to the preservation of Swiss interests in the region and assisting Swiss nationals who find themselves in an emergency situation.
