Diplomatic relations between Switzerland and Guinea were established in 1960. A Swiss consulate was opened in Conakry in 1959. The consulate was upgraded into an embassy, headed by a chargé d'affaires, in 1965, and was closed in 1992. Since 2001, Switzerland has maintained a consulate general in Conakry headed by an honorary representative.
In the 1960s, Switzerland signed a trade, investment protection and technical cooperation agreement with Guinea as well as an international civil aviation convention. However, the political actors who were in power in Guinea until 2010 obstructed the development of relations between the two countries.
