Consulate-New-York.com: We provide general data about the Foreign Consulates in New York and we have no association with the New York Consulates featured on this site.
- 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.
