Norwegian Embassy in Mexico City

The Embassy of Norway is far off along the idyllic undulating streets of Lomas de Chapultepec. But despite that distance, Norway is still an important trading partner and ally of Mexico. The two countries have enjoyed formal relations since Mexican Independence in 1821. At that time, Norway was still Part of the Norwegian-Swedish Union which ended only in 1905. Full diplomatic relations had begun, with the Union in 1885, and resumed with an independent Norway the same year.

As a member of EFTA (the European Free Trade Association), Norway has maintained a free trade agreement with Mexico since 2001. Norwegian exports to Mexico have steadily increased with 2022 marking a record year for trade between the two countries.

The Norwegian embassy opened in Mexico in 1910, and Mexico’s embassy in Oslo followed some years later.  Norway established an embassy in Mexico City and Mexico would established an embassy in Oslo a few years later. Since then, the two countries have hosted multiple high-level visits of Heads of State and other high-level figures.

Bilateral agreements include those focused on cultural exchanges, since 1980 and another on Agriculture Cooperation in 2000. Mexico’s main exports to Norway include iron and steel pipe, turbojet engine parts, turboprops and other gas turbines as well as malt beer. Mexico’s imports from Norway include fertilizers, petroleum products and hydrocarbons, plus dried, salted, and brine fish.

The Embassy offers consular services to Norwegian citizens. It’s also the head of a network of consular offices in  Acapulco, Cancún, Guadalajara, Tijuana, and Veracruz. There are also Norwegian consular offices throughout Central America.
