Honorary Consul

German Consulate General

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. They are, however, not authorized to provide all services, e.g. they cannot issue visas or passports. If you are unsure if a honorary consul can assist your with your specific concern, please contact the mission that the respective honorary consul reports to (e.g. consulate general or embassy).
