Estonia currently has nearly 200 honorary consuls in 87 countries. The main task of honorary consuls is to raise Estonia’s profile in their homeland, boost economic and cultural ties and education cooperation, and provide consular services and consular assistance to Estonian citizens abroad. Honorary consuls are prominent and respected locals who are not paid for their work as honorary consuls.
