This is a list of diplomatic missions in the United States. At present, 177 nations maintain diplomatic missions to the United States in the capital, Washington, D.C. Being the seat of the Organization of American States, the city also hosts missions of its member-states, separate from their respective embassies to the United States.

Eight nations also attribute their missions at the United Nations in New York City as their official embassies to the United States. However, only those offices in New York City that serve as an official diplomatic mission to the United States are listed here. For a complete list of diplomatic missions to the United Nations, see List of current Permanent Representatives to the United Nations.

Only diplomatic missions operated by a foreign country are listed here. Honorary consulates, typically private offices designated to provide limited services on behalf of a foreign country, are not listed. The United States Department of State maintains the official consular list.[1]

The following countries or entities have missions in Washington, D.C., though they may not have full diplomatic relations with the United States government.

Missions in New York City[edit]

New York City is home to the General Assembly of the United Nations, and all 195 member and observer states send permanent delegations. Nine diplomatic missions in New York City listed below are also formally accredited as each country's official embassy to the United States. There are 116 missions in the city. All are consulates-general unless otherwise noted.

Cities with ten or more consulates[edit]

Los Angeles[edit]

Los Angeles, the second-largest city in the United States, is home to 66 consular missions, more than any other city on the West Coast and any U.S. city except New York and Washington, D.C. Many of these consulates are located along Wilshire Boulevard.


Chicago[edit]

Chicago, the third largest city in the United States and the largest in the midwestern region of the country, is home to 54 missions, the fourth-most after Washington, D.C., New York and Los Angeles.

Miami[edit]

Atlanta[edit]

Atlanta is home to 27 missions.

Boston[edit]

Other cities with diplomatic missions[edit]

Many cities have only one or two consulates; these are often are from Mexico (which has 50 missions in the United States), or Guatemala (which has 23), or Canada (which has 17), or Japan (which has 17).

Cities with Mexican consulates only (22)[edit]

Due to the large number of Mexican immigrants in the United States, Mexico has 50 consular missions in the United States, more than any sending country has with any other host country. Many of these are smaller cities in the southwestern United States, including a number of border towns.[18]

Countries without formal diplomatic missions to the United States[edit]

Several countries do not have formal diplomatic missions accredited to the United States. Consular duties for each country—except Kiribati and non-UN members—are instead managed by their respective diplomatic missions to the United Nations in New York.
