Message of the Consul General

Dear Visitor,

welcome to the website of the Consulate General in Jeddah!  The Consulate General represents Germany’s interests in the western regions of Saudi Arabia in close cooperation with the German Embassy in Riyadh.

In recent years, the German representations in Saudi Arabia have been able to significantly increase the number of issued visa so that more visitors can travel from here to Germany in order to get to know our country and e.g. to study there or to conduct business.

In addition to consular help for Germans in our district, the Consulate General supports the full spectrum of inter-country activities. Our priorities lie in the areas of economic, intercultural, and scientific relations.

Jeddah hosts the headquarters of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).  The German Ambassador in Saudi-Arabia is Germany’s special representative for the OIC.  I support him as deputy in this task.

I hope that the webpages of the German representations in Saudi-Arabia provide you with the information you are looking for as well as additional links to other pertinent websites. Please direct any additional questions to myself and my team here at German Consulate General in Jeddah.

Wishing you a pleasant stay – in virtual reality or the real world –,

with best regards,

Holger G. Ziegeler
Consul General
