Responsibilities of mission

The primary goal of our work at the Embassy is to enhance the Finnish-Saudi relationship, in every sector and at all levels. Protecting and serving the interests of Finnish citizens is a key priority for us.

The Embassy covers in addition to Saudi Arabia Yemen, Oman and Kuwait. In these three countries our duties are similar to those that we have in Saudi Arabia. Some consular services are provided in cooperation with an Embassy of another EU member state which has a permanent presence in this particular country. Please contact us for more details.

Traditionally, the most important duty of the Embassy of Finland in Riyadh has been the promotion of economic cooperation between Finland and Saudi Arabia - and it is still important. Together with the Business Finland trade delegation that has its office in the premises of the Embassy, we act as a mediator in helping Finnish companies gain access to, and participation in the Saudi market.

This internet site is of course only one way to learn about Finland. More information is available through the links you will find at this site. And, of course, the Embassy is available for any enquiries you might have.
