Cameroon has honorary consulates in Essen, Hamburg and Vienna. An Honorary Consulate is neither a Consulate General nor an Embassy. Therefore, the Honorary Consul does not have all the competences of a Consulate General or an Ambassador. They exercise their functions under the exclusive responsibility and control of the Ambassador, head of the consular constituency.
Competences of Honorary Consuls
- Certification of certain documents with the exception of diplomas issued in Cameroon, birth certificates, marriage certificates and any other document issued by Cameroonian authorities.
- In case of arrest or incarceration of a Cameroonian, the Honorary Consul will be informed and will ensure the conditions of detention. In order to help him/her judicially, he/she will propose a list of lawyers to ensure his/her defence – the lawyer’s fees are to be paid by the person concerned.
- In the event of a serious accident, the Honorary Consul may inform the family and consider with them the measures to be taken: hospitalisation or repatriation – the expenses incurred remain at the expense of the relatives.
- In the event of death, the Honorary Consul will contact the Embassy so that the relevant formalities can be carried out – the costs must be covered by the insurance company of the deceased or, failing that, by the family.
