In most of the countries you will find diplomatic missions, which usually refers to an embassy and/or a consulate. Diplomatic bodies represent other country interests in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, with the aim of strengthening international relations between the states and providing services for their citizens in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
Embassies and consulates are considered legal territories of their home countries. They are not "foreign territory" but they are protected and considered the property of the country using them, meaning that Saint Vincent and the Grenadines does not have jurisdiction over the embassy or consulate of another country.
The Vienna Convention on Consular Relations international treaty defines the diplomatic mission’s purpose and framework. The various diplomatic missions offer several services and carry out different missions. For example:
NB: You will usually apply for a visa at the Consulate of the country you want to visit. However, if there is no such representation in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, you can apply for a visa at the embassy.
Not all countries have an Embassy and/or a Consulate as it depends of the political situation, the relationship with the host country, the size of the country, and the number of foreign citizens living there.
In some cases, countries can share representations and you can be assisted by the services of another embassy or consular service to get the information you need.
We recommend you register/contact your country’s embassy at your destination. It is a free service provided by any diplomatic mission and it will allow them to record information about your upcoming trip abroad. It can be used to assist you in case of an emergency.
Registration will also allow you to get routine information from your nearest embassy or consulate, as citizen residing abroad.
