consulates and embassies

You lose your passport: You're a victim of violence. What can you do?


Embassies

Officially, embassies can’t do anything to help individuals abroad except in certain particular cases (political interaction, for example), but they can offer assistance:

§  in the event of death

§  in the event of illness or serious accident

§  in the case of an arrest of detention

§  for victims of violence

§  and repatriation (especially in the case of armed conflict)


Consulates

The consulate is a representation of a country’s administration in a foreign state. Its actions concern not only its own citizens and nationals, but also residents or those transiting the country.

The main functions of a consulate are:

§  the establishment of official documents and their renewal

§  managing the civil state

§  informing its citizens

§  assistance and financial aid for nationals according to and depending on their situation

§  support for citizens who are arrested or in gaol
