Sweden intends to open an Embassy in Dublin

03 Nov 2021

The Swedish Government decided on 3 November to enhance its diplomatic presence in Ireland and intends to open an Embassy in Dublin. The purpose of the intended reopening is to strengthen our bilateral relations, further develop the political dialogue and promote Swedish interests in Ireland. Ireland is an important partner for Sweden bilaterally, in the EU and internationally. The purpose of reopening an Embassy in Dublin is to strengthen our bilateral relations, further develop the political dialogue and promote Swedish interests in Ireland. There is significant interests in Swedish solutions and potential for increased Swedish exports. Sweden and Ireland also share a common interest in a strong and effective EU. The Embassy’s duties will be to represent Sweden in Ireland, develop bilateral relations, strengthen political monitoring, trade promotion and promotion of Sweden, and provide consular services to Swedes. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs continuously adapts the organisation abroad in response to external changes, changing requirements and needs, and the budgetary situation to create the best possible conditions to pursue our foreign policy and promote Swedish interests. This is a constant process of change, and involves Sweden sometimes opening or closing embassies and consulates. Sweden has historically always had close relations with Ireland. When Ireland gained independence in 1949, Sweden was one of the first countries to establish diplomatic relations with the country. The previous Embassy was closed down in 2010, and a Stockholm-based Ambassador has been accredited to Ireland since then. The intention is to be able to open the Embassy in the second half of 2022. The timetable must account for everything from formal processes with the host country to practical considerations.
