Consulates located in New York - In the United States a
single Embassy of foreign (or guest) countries is not large enough to
handle all the essential services countrywide provided by an Embassy.
Hence, the need for smaller, regionally located branches, which are
called Consulates, enabling local residents and guest country nationals
diplomatic assistance at local level. A New York Consulate can be
likened to branch offices or satellites of the foreign country's
Embassies themselves, which, typically, are located in Washington DC. A
New York Consulate would usually be headed by an ex-patriate national
and frequently engaging local staff.
Assistance by a New York consulate - As well as firstly promoting
the interests and image of the representing country, a New York
Consulate would usually offer the majority of services provided by their
parent Embassy in Washington, but at local levels for convenience, often
giving more rapid service, such as in the provision of new and
replacement passports, issuing of visas, together with all aspects of
other general consular services available to New York citizens. For all
consular matters and for additional consulate information please contact
the New York consulate office directly either by email or phone.
