The Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) in the Kingdom of Eswatini (Chinese: 中華民國駐史瓦帝尼王國大使館; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Mínguó Zhù Shǐwǎdìní Wángguó Dàshǐguǎn) is the embassy of the Republic of China in Mbabane, Eswatini. The two countries have had diplomatic relations since Swaziland's independence in 1968.[2]

Eswatini is one of the 17 countries that recognise the Republic of China as the sole legitimate government of China.[3] As of 2019, it is the only country in Africa which does not have diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China.[4]

Until 2014, it was one of only four diplomatic missions in the country, along with the United States Embassy and the South African and Mozambique High Commissions.[5] However, Qatar has also established an embassy in Mbabane.[6]

The Embassy also has responsibility for Mozambique.[7] However, it is not accredited to Maputo, as Mozambique has maintained diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China since its independence from Portugal in 1975.[4]

Its counterpart body in Taiwan is the Embassy of Eswatini in Taipei.[8]
