Foreign Office of Westarctica
Count Stefan of Goldstream, Foreign Minister
The Foreign Office of Westarctica is the government ministry tasked with managing the nation's interactions with foreign governments and representing Westarctica's citizens and government on foreign soil.
The Foreign Minister, Count Stefan of Goldstream, has been the leader of the Honorary Consular Corps since 2018. His Lordship runs the Foreign Office from our European Headquarters in Germany.
Westarctica's team of diplomats meet biennially at the Chiefs of Mission Meeting. The last meeting occurred in Berlin, Germany on 2 November 2018.
The next is scheduled to occur in Nerja, Spain in November 2020.
The Diplomatic Corps
Westarctica has expanded its global reach by opening diplomatic missions in 14 countries around the world.
Each mission is staffed by a qualified representative of Westarctica who has successfully passed the Honorary Consul Training Course. The members of our diplomatic service have a passion for our mission and are uniquely suited to further Westarctica's goals with outreach to our supporters in their home country.
Honorary Consular Corps
The Honorary Consular Corps is the backbone of Westarctica's foreign affairs program. These hard-working volunteers represent our nation in their home country and surrounding region.
To learn more about becoming an Honorary Consul and representing Westarctica abroad, please visit our Honorary Consular Corps page.
As a sovereign nation-state, Westarctica engages in diplomatic relations with many other nations, including other unrecognized countries. However, we will only sign treaties or grant formal recognition to another country's government when it is in the best interests of Westarctica's government and people. This is a distinction that is rarely granted, however, you may learn more about the current status of our foreign affairs in Encyclopedia Westarctica.
