About Us About the High Commission

Welcome to the website of the High Commission of India in Mbabane, Eswatini.

In a major boost to India – Africa relations, the Union Cabinet of India chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on 21st March, 2018, approved opening of new Indian Missions in 18 African countries. It was decided that these Missions will be opened over a four year period between 2018 and 2021. This decision was taken to enhance India’s diplomatic outreach in the African continent and allow India to engage with Indian diaspora in African countries.

On April 9-10, 2018, the Hon’ble President of India made the first ever State Visit to the Kingdom of Eswatini on the invitation of His Majesty King Mswati III. He was accompanied by the First Lady, a Minister of State from Gujarat and some members of Parliament and senior officials of the Ministry of External Affairs.

One of the commitments made during the visit by the President of India and duly recorded in the Joint Communique issued at the end of the visit has been fulfilled with the establishment of the first resident High Commission of India in Mbabane which came into existence on 13th August, 2019 on assumption of charge of Ms Radha Venkataraman as the High Commissioner of India to the Kingdom of Eswatini.
