Tasks and Duties of Honorary Consuls:
Main tasks of Honorary Consuls include the enhancement of bilateral relations in trade, economy, culture and science between the sending country and the country of your citizenship or permanent residence.
The Honorary Consulate helps with the economic and trade cooperation and with the expansion of business from the country of citizenship in the country of representation, for example in East Europe or other country.
Another important task is the support of the development of the international relations, the representation and perception of the interests of the country you represent, and give assistance and consular protection for country of representation citizens and institutions.
The Honorary Consulate supports the work of the Embassy of the country of representation and informs the sending country on the economic, political, cultural, and social life of the country of citizenship or permanent residence of the Honorary Consul.
As an Honorary Consul, it is also your task to contribute to the traditionally friendly and multilateral relations between the countries and their people, and to represent the interests of the sending country and its citizens. In these strivings, you can always count with the support of the Embassy of the country of representation and its Consulates.
Benefits, Advantages, and Privileges
Honorary Consul may expect many benefits and privileges that they are difficult to list. One can travel through diplomatic channels as a VIP-person, often without visas. Volvo and some other brands are giving big discounts for diplomatic persons. The donations involved with diplomatic appointments are much smaller than the yearly-long discounts one can get. Some applicants use diplomatic passport to set up a nice trade with good profits for both ends. An appointment as the Honorary Consul of a foreign country is a source of considerable social prestige among the city’s elite. Your mansion can bear the represented country’s coat of arms.
Privileges could include:
Opportunity to meet government officials and be involved in diplomatic circles.
Diplomatic Immunity – under International Law (with some limitations).
No tax liability on any income arising from consular activities.
Usage of Diplomatic channels at airports, no time delaying and annoying customs checks.
Unlimited entry and exit privileges from host country for business and personal travel.
Opportunity to use some of the advantages for business purposes that will increase your social status.
Free Diplomatic vehicle license plates (Special color of the plate).
Honorary Consul Appointments are for reputable and respected persons, generally for high net worth individuals with a valuable network of connections in local business community. Honorary Consul must be able to offer the sending country benefits in return for their appointment.
If you meet with the conditions of the sending country it normally sends a Diplomatic Note with offer to appoint an Honorary Consul. Then if you meet with the conditions of your country of citizenship, the Foreign Affairs Ministry of your country can agree or refuse on a consular representation in your city and give you the Exequatur to confirm your status of an Honorary Consul. At the same time the sending state gives you Consular Commission (or Consular Patent) and Consular Corps ID-card. If accredited by the Foreign Affairs Ministry in your country of citizenship or permanent residence, the Honorary Consulate of the country you represent will be headed and led by you. It will be a ticket for a new life.
