About us

The Honorary Consular Corps Accredited to Hungary was formed in December 2001 and was registered by the Municipality Court on 25th February 2002 under the registration number 9.819.

At that time 38 founders who represented 33 countries operated as honorary consuls in the Republic of Hungary. The majority of our colleagues work in the capital, however we also have honorary consul in other towns such as Budaörs, Szigetvár, Szeged, Székesfehérvár, Miskolc, Pécs, Szombathely, Győr and Nagykanizsa.

The main objective of the Corp is to maintain and improve the prestige of the honorary consular institution. The organization also serves as representative of rights, and provides information and assistance with tools of internal communications, and also offers various services free of charge for consuls to assist in managing their tasks the most effective way.

The Corp became the only and most significant forum for consuls in Hungary, with the support of extended media-relations and protocol events.

The Corp became full member of FICAC in April 2008 following the meeting of theWorld Federation of Consuls in Prague. The European body, FUECH approved our membership in 2010.
