Montana Honorary Consular Corps

The Montana Honorary Consular Corps is just one of Montana's many points of contact for business, cultural, political and person-to-person exchanges between the Big Sky state and countries and cultures overseas.

Who is an Honorary Consul?

Honorary consuls in Montana are United States citizens living in the state with special ties to a particular foreign country. Each consul has their own unique connections based on business, personal heritage or academics. Each has a special spot in their heart for Montana and the country they represent.

Created through internationally-recognized treaties, honorary consuls are nominated and approved by the highest levels of government in their sponsor countries and are confirmed by the United States Department of State.

Consuls assist foreign nationals from their sponsor countries with immigration and legal matters, foster student and academic exchanges, encourage business and cultural ties, and work in a bi-lateral manner to promote understanding and education between Montana and the sponsor countries.
