What is an embassy?

An American embassy or consulate is an establishment or a team of people employed by the sending country to represent the sender state or agency officially at the receiving country. 

What is the difference between a consulate and an embassy?

Generally speaking, an embassy is an international organization that offers the primary international diplomatic representation of a country at another country (on average in the main capital city). A consulate is generally a smaller branch of an embassy or organization, generally located outside of the main country, but still offering the same function as the embassy. While these two services do offer very similar functions, there are some important differences between them that should be examined before one chooses to use one over the other.

One key distinction is in how much assistance is given to its local citizens abroad. An embassy typically has a number of staff members whose sole responsibility is to represent the government of its home country. A consulate, by contrast, is primarily directed toward assisting the citizens of its host country who need to travel back to their home country. The nature of their job, therefore, is very different. In addition, while the host country’s government often provides assistance to its citizens abroad, it is usually up to the consulate to handle matters such as securing passports and visas, and providing consular support.

Another important distinction between the two is the level of support the host government provides for its overseas mission. An embassy generally has a similar level of support to that of a consular department in a home country, but it often has its own mission director and overseas affairs officer (usually with a career history in the host country’s ministry and similar professional experience in foreign affairs). A consulate often works closely with the host government on matters ranging from security concerns to providing aid when citizens abroad become ill or in need of emergency consular support.
