Welcome

A greeting from the Ambassador

Dear compatriots,

Dear Friends of Switzerland,

Switzerland and Bulgaria maintain excellent and multifaceted relations. On the political, economic, administrative, scientific, cultural as well as on the personal level, there are structures, initiatives and individual activities that give these relations a concrete face.  

Since 21 September, I have been accredited as Switzerland's new Ambassador to the Republic of Bulgaria. It is an honour and a great pleasure for me, together with our excellent Embassy team with colleagues from Switzerland and Bulgaria, to further strengthen and expand these relations. I have been impressed by the expertise, the commitment and creativity with which concrete results have been achieved and ideas for the future are being further developed. We will keep you updated via this website and through social media - on Facebook: SwissEmbassySofia and Twitter: @SwissEmbSofia.

I am looking forward, together with my wife, to discovering this wonderful country and getting to know people in the coming years - perhaps also you personally.

The Swiss Embassy in Sofia as well as the responsible Consular Centre at the Swiss Embassy in Bucharest are there for you and can be reached - for both advice and assistance.

Raymund Furrer

Ambassador
