It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Regional Consular Centre (RCC) in London, which looks after Swiss nationals in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Established in 2012, the RCC is designed to fulfil many of the functions of a municipal administrative authority in Switzerland including assistance in various emergency situations.

The RCC is based at the Embassy of Switzerland in the United Kingdom in London, but works very closely with the Embassy of Switzerland in Ireland in Dublin including regular visits with a ‘mobile biometric passport station’ to assist with passport renewals and other formalities.

I hope that you find the information on this site useful. If you have further queries please do not hesitate to contact the Embassies in London and Dublin.

Best wishes,

Alexandre Fasel
Ambassador of Switzerland to the United Kingdom
