Dear visitor,

Together with my team, I welcome you on the website of the Embassy of Switzerland in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.

This Embassy is in charge of the diplomatic and consular relations between our country and the Republic of Kazakhstan and Tajikistan.

In the diplomatic field, the Embassy collaborates with the Kazakhstani and Tajikistani governments on a wide range of bilateral and regional topics including, but not limited to, trade, commerce, human rights, humanitarian assistance, defence and the environment. In the last years, our relationship has been particularly significant and intensive. In 2022, we will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Kazakhstan, as well as between Switzerland and Tajikistan.

The Trade Point Kazakhstan represents the Swiss trade and investment promotion agency Switzerland Global Enterprise (S-GE). A local Trade Promotion Team at the Embassy of Switzerland in Nur-Sultan is responsible for implementing Swiss export promotion strategy in Kazakhstan.

The Swiss Embassy also provides services (passport, civil status affairs, registration, etc.) for Swiss citizens in Kazakhstan via the consular section. Our visa section is responsible for providing visa services to those seeking to enter or take up residency in Switzerland.

This website is meant to serve as a gateway to Switzerland and aims to be the Swiss portal to Kazakhstan, providing a multitude of information about our country, its relations to Kazakhstan and the actions undertaken by this embassy. Moreover, it contains information about travelling to Switzerland (visa requirements, tourism, studying) and to Kazakhstan.
