The Polish state is planning to open an embassy in Iceland in the near future, as confirmed by Iceland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Ingibjörg Sólrún Gísladóttir, although she would not say when exactly the embassy will open.
According to Fréttabladid, the Polish government is currently looking for a suitable building in Reykjavík and if that quest proves successful, the embassy could open by the end of this year.
Until now, the Polish ambassador to Norway has also served as ambassador to Iceland. At the beginning of 2008, about 8,500 Polish citizens were living in Iceland. They are by far the largest group of immigrants in Iceland.
