Foreign embassies in each country
Untitled Document

We have shared foreign embassies in most of the UN member countries and in SARs and some non UN member countries.

These embassies are typically based in the capital of the country and may have offices in other cities in the country (e.g. in our global sample country India, may embassies have consulates in Mumbai, some have consulates in Bangaluru, Chennai, Kolkata and may be other cities)

What is the difference between an embassy and consulate ?
An embassy is the larger representation, but a consulate is only a smaller version of the embassy. There will be one embassy of one country in the country but there can be more than one consulates in the country (specifically in large countries like India).

Consulates in a sense can be called junior embassies. Embassies are permanent diplomatic missions generally located in a county’s capital. Consulates are located only in bigger cities and not in the capital city.
