Consulates have the authority to:
- Foster friendly relations between the host nation and Albithica
Promote trade that encourages positive economic benefits for both nations
Provide assistance to Albithican citizens visiting/living abroad in the host country, as well as process visa/residency applications.
A Consulate, however, does not have the authority to engage in diplomatic relations with the host nation. Communication is to be conducted via official channels.
Embassies have the same authority as a consulate along with:
- Establishment of a permanent diplomatic link that represents cordial relations
Propagation of international cooperation through consistent communication between Albithica and the host nation
Albithica will be selective of what nations we will establish Embassy relations with. Consular relations, on the other hand, will not be as selective.
Albithica is a member of the Dokodo Union, as well as a Tier 1 member of COLFE.
Levels of Diplomatic Relations:
- Countries that have Embassy relations with Albithica are considered to be cordial relations. Typically, Embassy relations denote that the host nation is an ally of Albithica. The Ambassador to the host nation serves as the primary method of diplomatic communication. Nationals from countries with cordial relations with Grand Republic require no visa to enter Albithica at the very least.
Countries that have Consular relations with Albithica are considered to be friendly relations. Establishing Consulates is considered a symbol of international friendship between the host nation and Albithica. The primary method for diplomatic communication is via official channels with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Official channels are a more direct and continuous line of communication than communiques. Nationals from countries with friendly relations with the Grand Republic only require an electronic authorization/eVisa to enter Albithica.
Countries that have no relations with Albithica are considered to be cautious relations. Albithica is wary of nations in this level, and will typically be hesitant to engage with them in sensitive or intimate matters until relations improve, or the nation's motives and ambitions can be properly ascertained. Regardless, Albithica will maintain an arms length distance with nations occupying this level. The primary method of diplomatic communication is via communiques with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. All nations that are not listed as having Embassy/Consular relations with Albithica, as well as those not under Albithican sanctions or in open conflict with us are to be assumed to occupy this level. Nationals from countries with cautious relations with the Grand Republic require a visa-upon-arrival to enter Albithica.
Countries that Albithica has levied sanctions on are considered to be contentious relations. These are nations that have directly threatened Albithica or our interests in some way. Albithica considers these nations to be untrustworthy and suspicious, but is always open to redeem relations, if at all possible. All communiques are closed with the nation, and indirect backchannels with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are opened as the primary method of diplomatic communication. Nationals from countries that have contentious relations with the Grand Republic require a visa-before-arrival to enter Albithica.
Countries that Albithica is currently engaged in conflict with are considered to be hostile relations. These nations are considered enemies of the Grand Republic. Redemption is only possible if the conflict is resolved, and even then, the nation can at most hope for cautious relations in the future. If a nation occupies this level, typically all forms of alleviating tensions have failed. All diplomatic channels are closed, with communication with the nation in question being handled directly by the Prime Minister and/or President. Currently, no nation occupies this level. Nationals from countries that have hostile relations with the Grand Republic are barred from entering Albithica, except under special circumstances.
From time to time, Albithica will issue notices on any nation for actions that the nation in question have committed that Albithica does not agree with. These notices do not serve as detriments to Albithican diplomacy, but are taken into account if serious foreign policy decisions are being considered.
If you are interested, please telegram your intent to establish relations with us, so we can begin the process of diplomacy.
Albithica hopes for diplomatic missions with all Anterian nations, and will telegram those that our government is especially interested in establishing said relations with.
A factbook of current diplomatic missions is available, and it is updated accordingly: nation=albithica/detail=factbook/id=749047
If there are any questions about this program, please feel free to telegram your concerns.
