This article lists the names of ambassadors and diplomats currently employed by Knootoss in foreign nations and to international organisations, as well as ambassadors from foreign nations to Knootoss. This is by no means a complete list.

Usually the ambassador will be an Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary (or simply Ambassador) representing the head of state, the Prime Minister of Knootoss directly. Alternatively, an Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary (or envoy) may be employed, representing the government of Knootoss in a consulate. Consulates are usually established in states deemed to be of lesser importance to the Dutch Democratic Republic. In addition to these representatives the Knootian Ministry of Economic Affairs has established 'Economic Affairs Consulates' which have their own 'ambassadors' representing the Minister of Economic Affairs and Knootian business interests. Where relevant these representatives will be listed.

In cases of dispute, it is not uncommon for Knootoss to recall its Ambassador for consultations as a sign of its displeasure. This is less drastic than cutting diplomatic relations completely, and the mission will still continue operating more or less normally, but it will be headed by a chargé d'affaires with limited powers.

Knootian ambassadors are to be addressed as "Your Excellency".
