Honorary consuls of the countries they represent are asked to email this author, Keith A. Forbes at firstname.lastname@example.org to report any changes of or additions to their names and contact details including email addresses.
Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory, not yet politically independent although self-governing, thus there are no embassies. Most resident consuls are honorary. The exceptions are the USA and Portugal, both with full consulates. The USA has a big consulate and a Consul General as more than 75% of Bermuda's 700,000 plus annual tourists are from the USA and a number of Americans live and are employed here. Portugal has a full consulate as there are many long-term Portuguese nationals in Bermuda including many born here who are not Bermudian citizens.
Honorary consuls in Bermuda and the USA and Portuguese consulates are recognized and certified as such by Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Nationals of all countries including the United Kingdom should note that if and when or if any of their children are born in Bermuda during their visit or residence, they are not Bermudian under Bermuda law unless one qualifying parent is Bermudian. (The laws are different in the USA, UK, Canada, etc).
Consuls are members of the Club Consulaire des Bermudes. Their functions include serving their nationals residing locally and visitors to Bermuda from their countries. They have diplomatic links with Bermuda via the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (CFO) in London. Consulates are normally open Mondays to Fridays. Always call ahead for an appointment.
Countries not shown on this list have no local consuls representing them in Bermuda and should be contacted via their consulates or embassies in London or Ottawa or Washington, DC.
Visa regulations can vary from country to country. Those who wish to visit or reside in any country named below should visit the consulates in person, always carrying and prepared to show full personal identification including passports, driver's licenses, etc and should ask what they need to enter that country.

All inquiries to The Canadian
Consulate General, 1251 Avenue of the
2019. April 4. A team from Canada could assist the Department of Immigration in providing Bermudians who require biometric data to work, visit or study in Canada. The announcement came today from Walton Brown, the Minister for the Cabinet Office. Canada unveiled the new requirements last year, meaning that local residents carrying any type of British passport, including British Dependent Territories Citizens, would be required to submit fingerprints and a photograph with their applications after December 31. The biometric information would have to be renewed once every ten years. The cost to provide the information was CAD$85 for individuals and a maximum of CAD$170 for family applications. However, Bermuda has no facilities to take biometric information, meaning locals would have to travel to the United States to provide the data. Mr Brown said that Bermudians applying for Canadian visas faced “hardship, economic and otherwise” by having to go to the US. He added: “With Bermudian families already sacrificing to meet the high costs of educating their children, an added burden or roadblock is not something that they should have to take on by themselves.” The requirement affects a variety of travelers, but is mandatory for all foreign students in Canada. The minister said: “The Bermuda Government has stepped in and is currently in discussions with the Canadian Consulate in Bermuda to address the issue of Bermudians having to travel to the US to collect the biometric data. Ultimately we are advocating for a Canadian team to come to Bermuda to collect the biometric data, or exploring the possibility of the Department of Immigration or another entity becoming an authorized Canadian Visa Application Centre or Application Support Centre. Our Canadian partners have been receptive and we are hopeful that we will find a good balance. I look forward to updating the public on further developments.”
