Welcome to the website of the Honorary Consular Corps.

In this age of globalisation, internet has an ever increasing effect on traditional institutions, and diplomacy is no exception.

The institution of Honorary Consuls has been undergoing a new renaissance in recent years. This is as a result of the ongoing large scale development of communications on the one hand, and the reduction of financial resources invested in diplomatic services, on the other. The consequence is that various Embassies have been downsized – some more drastically than others.

Clearly, the role and functions of the Honorary Consul have therefore assumed even more importance than ever before.

We consider the launching of this website to be a significant milestone in the continuing evolution of the Honorary Consular Corps in Malta.

It is our intention that this website will serve as a first point of reference for those seeking information about Honorary Consuls accredited to Malta.
