Who We Are
The opening of a consular post, whether principal (consulate or consular section of an Embassy) or secondary (vice-consulate or consular agency) is always linked to the consent of the receiving State
For any administrative assistance, the main interlocutor of the Gabonese who reside in the United States of America or visiting is the Consulate.
This diplomatic service is headed by a Consul who should not be confused with an Ambassador. In exercising its powers, the Consul is independent of the Ambassador, except to keep him informed.
The Consul shall be appointed by the Head of the sending State and may exercise his mission only after receiving the exequatur of the host country, a procedure comparable to the presentation of the credentials of an Ambassador
It was in August 24th, 1995 that the Consulate of the Gabonese Republic obtained the exequatur (approval) from the United States Department of State.The Consulate of the Gabonese Republic in New York is the first consular representation in the United States of America.
Mrs. Yvonne WALKER-BOROBO, then consular agent, took the noble mission of opening the post.
