  • The Embassy of Switzerland in Dhaka is closely following the situation in Bangladesh and in Dhaka in particular. Its development is currently uncertain. Tensions remain high.
  • We recommend that you consult the FDFA's travel advice for Bangladesh and obtain information locally and via the media.
  • Avoid demonstrations and large gatherings of people. Follow the instructions of the local authorities and be aware of your surroundings.
  • We encourage Swiss travellers to download the offical TravelAdmin app and register their trip to Bangladesh there. This way, the FDFA can contact you if necessary.
  • As telecommunications have been cut off in Bangladesh for an unknown time, the Swiss Embassy in Dhaka cannot be contacted at the moment. The Embassy remains closed on Wednesday, 24 July 2024.
  • In case of emergency, you can call the FDFA helpline: +41 800 24 7 365 or 0 800 24 7 365.
