Consuls

Honorary consuls of the countries they represent are asked to email this author, Keith A. Forbes at email keithforbes01@btinternet.com  to report any changes of or additions to their names and contact details including email addresses, so that this listing can be updated.

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.

Canada Canada flag Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone 2019. February 1. Isabelle Ramsay-Brackstone, owner of an island perfumery is the new Honorary Consul of Canada. c/o Stewart Hall, 5 Queen Street, St. George, GE 05. Phone 1 844 880 6519. Fax 212 596-1666 or 212-596-1790.  Email ccs.scc@international.gc.ca. See https://www.canada.ca/Canada-In-New-York.

The Canadian-born operator of Lili Bermuda, Ms Ramsay-Brackstone, originally from Montreal, Quebec, came to Bermuda 15 years ago with her late husband, Bermudian businessman Kirby Brackstone. They raised their family here in Bermuda and during that time they also acquired the Lili Bermuda Perfumery. They are located in St George’s. Ms Ramsay-Brackstone worked in the banking industry before coming to Bermuda and has since held positions with the tourism board and the National Museum of Bermuda board. Her presence day to day will be offering assistance in consular services, such as if Canadians are stranded. Phyllis Yaffe, Consul-General of Canada for New York, which includes Bermuda in its remit, was delighted to make the appointment. She said: “There are about 3,000 Canadians living on the island and, of course, they need access to consular services. It is for things like lost passports or papers, but also about bringing Canadians to Bermuda for business and bringing Bermuda to Canada for business.”
