By clicking on www.admin.ch, you've come to just the right place for all the information you need on Switzerland's federal authorities and the way in which they function. You will also find direct links to the seven government departments and their affiliated federal offices, to the Federal Chancellery, to parliament and to the federal courts.
Information and communication are key tasks of government and of the administration. Citizens are legitimately entitled to expect, indeed they have a right, to be kept fully informed by the authorities in a timely manner. We therefore attach great importance to using modern means of communication and to always being up-to-date.
There is one thing about this site that you will probably notice straight away, namely its multilingual nature. Switzerland is a patchwork of four linguistic regions: German, French, Italian and Romansh-speaking. This blend is an important element of our country's cultural diversity. Consequently, our internet content is usually available in at least three languages and occasionally even in five languages as selected information is also provided in Romansh and English.
I'm sure you'll come across plenty of interesting information on your way around the www.admin.ch site! Should you have any questions or comments, please get in touch with our webmaster (under the heading 'Contact'). We will do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
I hope you enjoy your time navigating your way around our site!
