Consuls

Honorary consuls of the countries they represent are asked to email this author, Keith A. Forbes at admin@bermuda-online.org to report any changes of or additions to their names and contact including email addresses. When local Bermuda-based consulates have their own website they will be shown here once they reciprocate the hyperlink.

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. Honorary consuls in Bermuda and the US and Portuguese consulates in this British Overseas Territory are recognized and certified as such by Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office. In the case of the USA, more than 75% of tourists, business visitors and consumer goods come from the USA. (Portugal has a full consulate as there are many long-term Portuguese nationals in Bermuda. Nationals of all other countries including Great Britain who are resident or visiting should note carefully that when or if any of their children are born in Bermuda, they are not Bermudian under the law unless at least one qualifying parent is Bermudian. (The laws are different in the USA, UK, Canada, etc).

Those countries shown below have consuls who are members of the Club Consulaire des Bermudes. Their functions include serving their nationals residing locally; visitors to Bermuda who are nationals of those countries; and Bermuda residents visiting their countries on vacation or business. The countries concerned also 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 and should be contacted 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. Bermudian holders of full British citizen passports do not require visas to travel to any country in the European Union (EU). However, holders of Bermudian (not full British citizen) passports do. For example, all British Dependent Territory citizens with a local (ie Bermuda) passport need a visa to enter Italy. This applies whether Italy is either the first port of entry to Europe or the country where the visitor stays for the longest period of travel. To avoid this, it is recommended Bermudians obtain their British passport as an option, which means that they will then NOT need a visa to enter Italy or obtain any Schengen visas. The application for the Italian visa has to be processed through the Italian Honorary Consul on the Island. The cost of an entry visa which takes up to eight weeks or sometimes longer to obtain, is normally payable by US $ draft with this cost varying according to European exchange rates. There are additional costs for couriers; administration agency costs to prepare and process the paperwork; and more

Minors traveling to Italy with school groups need to supply additional information obtained from their parents. Once a visa is obtained, it allows travel within the following 15 Schengen countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden.

Adults and minors from Bermuda visiting the USA who are not passport-carrying US citizens should always first contact the USA consulate.
