The Executive of Pedro Sánchez has opened new Honorary Consulates in Cambodia, Laos and Austria, in the latter case to meet the increase in the Spanish population in the extreme west of the country.
On the one hand, according to the Official State Gazette published yesterday, the Government has created two Honorary Consular Offices in Phnom Penh (Cambodia) and Vientiane (Laos), in both cases to meet the consular needs of both residents and tourists. they move to these two countries, “whose number increases year after year”. Both consulates will have jurisdiction over the entire territory of Cambodia and Laos and both will depend on the Embassy of Spain in Bangkok.
On the other hand, the Executive has decided to move to the city of Dornbirn the Honorary Consular Office of Spain in the Austrian Vorarlberg region. The office was to date in the city of Rankweil, whose Honorary Consulate will, therefore, be deleted. The decision is justified by the need to serve the growing Spanish population settled in that region. Dornbirn is the most populous city in the land of Vorarlberg and is located only ten kilometers from its capital, Bregenz.
Finally, the Government has decided to expand the circumscription of the Honorary Consular Office of Spain in Odense to adapt it to the internal administrative and territorial division of the Kingdom of Denmark. The office will continue to have the status of Honorary Vice-Consulate.
