Advance information on Bermuda - from our files exclusively.
As Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory, not yet politically independent although self-governing, there are no embassies. Most resident consuls are deemed to be honorary. The exceptions are the USA and Portugal, both with full consulates. In the case of the USA, at least 85% of tourists, business visitors and consumer goods come from the USA. Also, some American visitors caught and convicted of importing illegal narcotics, may need the services of the consulate. Portugal has a full consulate as there are probably more long-term Portuguese nationals in Bermuda than any other country, including a number born in Bermuda but who under Bermuda law are not Bermudian because neither parents are Bermudian.
To keep this listing accurate, consulates or Honorary consuls are asked to email this author, Keith A. Forbes at email@example.com with any changes or additions to their contact addresses. Except for the US Consulate, none of the following have reported any websites. When they do, they will be shown here once consuls reciprocate the hyperlink.
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.
Bermudian holders of full British citizen passports do not generally require visas to travel to any country in the European Union (EU). However, exceptions are for holders of Bermudian (not full British citizen passports issued before 2002, because British Dependent Territory passports do not state that the holder is a citizen of a British Overseas Territory (BOT), the terminology applied in 2002 when all BOT citizens became eligible for British citizenship.Due to a change of policy of the European Union on December 26, 2006, any British Dependent Territory citizens with a local (ie Bermuda) passport will 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, changes every 3 months, is presently $85.90 by US $ draft with this cost varying according to European exchange rates; approximately $95 for courier costs; approximately $70 administration agency costs to prepare and process the paperwork. Minors traveling to Italy with school groups need to supply additional information. 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. Also persons not BOT or EU passport holders. Visa regulations can vary from country to country and all holding a Bermudian passport must check visa requirements for all destinations before traveling with both a travel agent and the European honorary consulates mentioned below.
Bermudians with a Bermudian Passport or those with a British Passport have the right to visit British Consulates abroad for assistance. For information go to The Foreign and Commonwealth Office at www.fco.gov.uk.
