Foreign embassies in Berlin

When planning a visit to another country, renewing your passport, or replacing a lost or stolen passport, you may need to visit an embassy or consulate. The US and French embassies have prominent positions next to Brandenburger Tor, and the Russians claim one of the largest embassies in Unter den Linden.

Other diplomatic agencies are scattered throughout the city. It is not uncommon to be wandering through a quiet residential neighborhood and come across representation of a smaller country. Some countries also have two representatives in the capital, an embassy and a consulate. But what exactly is the difference?

Embassy v. consulate

The terms embassy and consulate are often used interchangeably, but the two actually serve different purposes.

Embassy : the larger and more important, this is the permanent diplomatic mission. Located in the capital of a country (usually), the embassy is responsible for representing the country of origin abroad and handling major diplomatic issues.

Consulate : smaller version of an embassy located in large cities. Consulates handle minor diplomatic matters such as issuing visas, assisting in business relationships, and caring for migrants, tourists, and expatriates.
