The Embassy opened in early 2002. It covers two countries in the Gulf region - the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain.

One of the main priorities of the Embassy is to promote and encourage Swedish trade and business as well as investments in and tourism to Sweden. This is an important building block of the bilateral relations between Sweden and the two countries that the Embassy covers.
