Resident Embassies Principality of Liechtenstein


Resident Embassies
Principality of Liechtenstein

The ambassadors represent the Principality of Liechtenstein in another country as  the highest representatives of the Principality of Liechtenstein. The ambassadors are representatives of the government, and thus the highest ranking representatives of the Principality of Liechtenstein in the respective host country.

The ambassadors as well as other diplomats are granted immunity in order to enable unrestricted representation of interests. The representative residence of the ambassador and his/her family is called «Residenz» and is - like the embassy - an extraterritorial area for the host country. The ambassadors of the Principality of Liechtenstein safeguard the interests of our country in their host country, and are thus bound to the instructions of the Department for Foreign Affairs.
    
Included are all areas of intergovernmental cooperation, but particularly politics,  culture, economy and legal and consular matters. It also concerns intensifying the cooperation, not merely at the highest level, but on all levels.

For this purpose the ambassador requires good personal contacts in the most varying circles. His/her interlocutors are the members of the government and the parliament as well as important personalities from the realm of political, economical and cultural life, the press and the country’s citizens. However, as a connecting link between two countries the ambassador is not merely responsible for the mainte-nance of relations between both countries and the appropriate representation. As a countermove, he/she also informs the government of the Principality of Liechtenstein about the important political, economical and cultural developments and decisions in his/her host country.

The ambassador receives delegations and travelling personalities from the Principality of Liechtenstein for information discussions and brings them together, within the scope of pertinent events, with important interlocutors from his/her host country. The ambassador is supported in all areas of his/her daily work the embassy employees.
