The Representation of the Faroes in London opened on 1st September 2002. The initiative to establish the Representation was taken by the Faroese Government, in close collaboration with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Formally, the Representation of the Faroes is established as a section at the Embassy of Denmark in London.
