Dear visitors 

Welcome to the website of the Swiss Embassy in Finland. 

This homepage provides you with useful basic information about Switzerland and its relations with Finland.   

While the Swiss Embassy in Helsinki covers the manifold bilateral relations all consular services and visa support are provided by the Regional Consular Centre in Stockholm

Switzerland and Finland have a lot in common. They are solid democracies with a high rule of law and human rights standard. They stress their independence but are also committed to international solidarity through development cooperation and peacebuilding. Both countries have a high standard of living due to a competitive economy and a performing education and research system. The numerous similarities build a good base for the exchange and cooperation of our two countries and their people. 

It is the aim of this Embassy to further strengthen and develop these existing ties. 

Kind regards 

The Ambassador of Switzerland 

Heinrich Maurer
