Welcome to Embassy of India, Berne, Switzerland

Switzerland and India have had cordial and friendly relations since India’s independence. The relationship is based on shared values of democracy, multiculturalism and the rule of law. Independent India’s policy of non-alignment and Switzerland’s traditional policy of neutrality helped to develop a close understanding between the leaders of the two countries.
A Treaty of Friendship between India and Switzerland was signed at New Delhi on August 14, 1948, one of the first such treaties to be signed by the independent India. The Treaty provided for the establishment of diplomatic missions between the two countries and missions were opened in Berne and Delhi soon after its conclusion. In recognition of the growth of multi-faceted bilateral relationship in the past six decades and to outline the future areas of mutual interest and cooperation, India and Switzerland have decided to elevate the bilateral relationship to a new and higher level by agreeing to establish a Privileged Partnership between them, on the occasion of completion of 60 years of diplomatic relations. There have been exchange of bilateral visits at higher levels.

Ambassador of India in Berne, Switzerland is concurrently accredited to the Principality of Liechtenstein and The Holy See.
