1. Introduction

There are currently 108 embassies in Stockholm, 13 international organizations with seat agreements and 3 consulates general in Gothenburg.

For the sake of brevity foreign embassies, career consular posts and international organizations with seat agreements are often referred to as 'missions' and their personnel as 'staff'.

The status (including privileges and immunities) of embassies, consular posts and international organizations in Sweden is governed by the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (1961), the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (1963), and the various seat agreements that have been concluded with international organizations. Sweden's obligations under these conventions and seat agreements regarding privileges and immunities have been incorporated in the Act on Immunity and Privileges in Certain Cases.
