Corona Virus (Covid-19): Important information when contacting the embassy

Booking appointments for all visits to the embassy
To limit the spread of the ongoing Corona outbreak, the Swedish Embassy in Bern is only open to visitors after booking an appointment.

Telephone contact with the embassy
The embassy receives many calls due to the Corona virus and it may take a moment for the call to be answered. We regret this and do everything to answer all incoming calls quickly.

Visits to the embassy
A total of three visitors can be in the embassy waiting room at the same time. This can mean that visitors have to wait in front of the embassy.
