Note on barrier-free access

The Embassy supports citizens with disabilities and makes every effort to ensure access to its staff within the framework of the structural conditions. This is best achieved if we are informed of your visit in advance. The consulate counter room and a side entrance to the embassy have access ramps. Unfortunately, there are no disabled toilets in the embassy building. If you have any questions about accessibility or need assistance, please contact us.
