Missions of the Faroe Islands abroad

The Faroe Islands have Missions in Brussels, Reykjavík, London and Moscow, as well as a Representation in Copenhagen. The Representations in Brussels, London, Reykjavík and Moscow are established in cooperation with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, thus granting diplomatic status to the Faroese Heads of Mission.

The Faroese heads of mission are the formal representatives of the government in relation to the authorities of the host countries/international organisations and local institutions.

The Missions keep abreast of matters of interest to the Faroe Islands. A natural part of their activities is working to promote the Faroe Islands and to show what the country has to offer, both in terms of the main industries, as well as in other fields that make the Faroe Islands an interesting partner. This includes highlighting the talent and diversity of Faroese arts and culture - music, visual art, literature, design, cuisine and other aspects of Faroese creativity
