The Embassy of Eswatini in Taipei (Chinese: 史瓦濟蘭王國駐台大使館; pinyin: Shǐwǎjìlán Wángguó Zhù Tái Dàshǐ Guǎn) is the embassy of Eswatini in Taipei, Republic of China (Taiwan). The two countries have had diplomatic relations since Swaziland's independence in 1968.[2] However, Swaziland was initially represented in Taipei by a Consulate.[3]

This tiny kingdom is one of the seventeen countries that recognises the Republic of China as the sole legitimate government of China.[4] After the diplomatic breakdown between Burkina Faso and Taiwan in May 2018, Eswatini is the only country in Africa which has no diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China.[5]

Its counterpart body in Eswatini is the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in Mbabane, the Kingdom of Eswatini.[6]
