Normally honorary consuls are people who are based in the regions or territories concerned. As they are not Japanese civil servants, there are limitations to the duties they are authorised to perform. For instance, they are not authorised to issue passports or visas and cannot authenticate documents related to nationality or residence.
Mr.Kjeld Johannesen has been appointed as Honorary Consul-General of Japan in Aarhus since June 2006, and has re-appointed for another 5 years in June 2013.
” Det er en stor ære for mig, at jeg er blevet genudpeget som Honorær Generalkonsul for Japan i Aarhus
for endnu en 5-års periode. Jeg ser frem til arbejdet og vil gøre mit bedste for at supportere Japans interesser.”
”It is a great honour for me that I was re-appointed as Honorary Consul-General of Japan in Aarhus
for another 5 years. I am looking forward to the work and I will do my best to support Japan.”
