The Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia in Bern manages the official relationship between the Republic of Indonesia and the Swiss Confederation, as well as the Principality of Liechtenstein. Indonesia's diplomacy in Switzerland and Liechtenstein seeks to promote strong bilateral ties with host countries and to advance Indonesia's policy objectives in the heart of Europe.
The Embassy was officially established in 1952 and it was also accredited to the United Nations and General Agreement of Trade and Tariffs (GATT) in Geneva. From 1954 until 1965, the Embassy was also accredited to the Holy See of Vatican, and from 1957 until 1967 the Embassy was also accredited to the Kingdom of Spain. In 1967 the Indonesian Mission to the United Nations in Geneva was established thus the Embassy was formally separated and maintained its function as bilateral mission. In addition, with the establishment of permanent Embassies to the Holy See of Vatican and to the Kingdom of Spain, the Embassy in Bern was formally separated and maintained its function as bilateral mission to the Swiss Confederation. After the establishment of formal diplomatic relations with Liechtenstein in 1998, the Embassy was also accredited to the Principality of Liechtenstein.
The Embassy issues visas to travelers and provides protective and emergency services to the Indonesian community living and traveling in Switzerland or Liechtenstein. The Embassy accomplishes these goals by engaging with counterparts and affiliated organizations in the Swiss Government and the Principality of Liechtenstein and by reaching out to the Swiss public with cooperative projects, educational exchange programs and an active program of public information.
