LOCAL CHAMPIONS FOR INTERNATIONAL DIPLOMACY

The Cleveland Foreign Consular Corps, formed in 1925, is a group of men and women selected by various foreign governments to serve as nonpolitical representatives of international diplomacy between the country they represent and the U.S.–particularly the Cleveland area. Such individuals may be either honorary consuls, who are usually American citizens (sometimes descended from natives of the country they serve), or career consuls, who are citizens of the countries they represent and who are paid by those countries for their full-time service. Both groups essentially have similar duties and responsibilities, including promoting and maintaining good relations between countries; furthering business and cultural bonds; stimulating and expanding trade and tourism; providing information about investment opportunities; aiding nationals living (or visiting) in the area; legalizing documents such as visas and passports; settling estates; providing information for students in area schools and colleges; and answering inquiries from the populace of the city.

Cleveland Foreign Consular Corps members currently represent the following nationalities:
ALBANIA | BELGIUM | CANADA | CZECH REPUBLIC | DENMARK | FRANCE | GERMANY | HUNGARY | ITALY | LITHUANIA | LUXEMBOURG
NETHERLANDS | ROMANIA | SERBIA | SLOVENIA | SPAIN | SWEDEN | SWITZERLAND | UKRAINE | UNITED KINGDOM
