Vietnam visa for Switzerland

Swiss citizens can apply for Vietnam visa from Switzerland, or from any other countries where they are staying or living in by selecting rapid visa online application. The visa on arrival is the easiest and cheapest way for the Swiss people getting the visa to Vietnam.

1. Vietnam and Switzerland relations

Initial contacts between Switzerland and Vietnam date back to the end of the 19th century, when Swiss companies established trading posts in what was then French Indochina. It was Alexandre Yersin (1863-1943), a Swiss/French national, who introduced the rubber tree and the malaria remedy quinine in Indochina at the turn of the 19th century. Switzerland opened a consulate in Saigon in 1926. At the beginning of the war in Indochina (1946-1954) there were some 150 Swiss nationals living in what is now Vietnam.

The war in Indochina came to an end in 1954. The peace negotiations were held in Geneva. Until the outbreak of the Vietnam war Switzerland initially maintained relations with the non-communist South, opening a Consulate General in Saigon in 1958. During the war Switzerland provided both South and North Vietnam with humanitarian aid. On 11 October 1971 – before the end of the war – Switzerland established diplomatic relations with the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Switzerland was one of the first western countries to do so.

In 1986 the Vietnamese government initiated important economic reforms with its policy of renewal (doi moi). These led to development on a remarkable scale. Today Vietnam is an important partner to Switzerland in south-east Asia, as numerous official visits attest.
