Honorary Consuls - Consulate General Chicago

Besides helping to promote German-US relations in their region, honorary consuls are also able to assist US and German citizens in some legal and consular issues related to Germany. However, they are not authorized to provide all services, e.g. they are not allowed to issue visas. If you are unsure if a honorary consul can assist your with your specific concern, please contact the Legal and Consular Department of the Consulate General Chicago.
