Greetings from Ambassador Rolf Ulrich
Welcome to the website of the German Embassy in Gaborone.
At the beginning of September 2013 I picked up my position as Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in Botswana. Since then a lot has happened in Botswana. In October 2014, a new parliament was elected in free and transparent elections. Prior to this, in June 2014, the Okavango Delta was inscribed as no. 1000 on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. The year 2016 will witness the festivities on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Independence of Botswana.
On the following pages my colleagues and I present to you the different sections of work/activities of the Embassy and try to communicate useful information for visitors, tourists and business representatives. Moreover, you will be informed about the German cooperation with the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
The services of the legal and consular section include legal information and forms which can be downloaded and printed.
