A number of foreign nations maintain consulates in Oregon. Consuls are officials appointed by a government to live in a foreign city to look after the business and interests of the home country and to assist and protect its nationals within the consular territory.

A consular representative promotes a country’s trade within the assigned area, assists and protects shipping interests, assists native seamen in distress, may adjudicate shipping matters, administers oaths, legalizes ships’ papers and foreign documents as required by a country’s laws, issues passports and visas and explains a country’s policies, cultural achievements and its attractions for tourism.
