The consular affairs section looks after Swiss and Liechtenstein nationals living in the our consular district in western and southern India, namely in Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telangana as well as Andaman & Nicobar, Daman & Diu, Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Puducherry.

Swiss and Liechtenstein citizens living in the above-mentioned consular jurisdiction are asked to register themselves at the Consulate General of Switzerland in Mumbai, so we can offer them a number of services, such as: 

  • Translation/certification of Indian records (civil status)
  • Issuing passports and ID cards 
  • Political rights services 
  • Naturalization services
  • Welfare services  

The section offers assistance to Swiss and Liechtenstein citizens in case of arrest, accident or other emergency when all private means and possibilities have been exhausted. We are bound to the Swiss law in this function, particularly by the Swiss Abroad Act.

In order to fulfill our functions, we keep an extensive network of various Swiss as well as Indian institutions and authorities.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
