You will be redirected to a page showing the foreign embassies and consulate located within that country. From here, filter the countries from the dropdown list to locate the embassy and diplomatic contact details you require.
What's the difference between an Embassy and a Consulate
A permanent diplomatic mission is typically known as an Embassy, and the head of the mission is known as an Ambassador or High Commissioner. The term "embassy" is commonly used also as a section of a building in which the work of the diplomatic mission is carried out, but, strictly speaking, it is the diplomatic delegation itself that is the embassy, while the office space and the diplomatic work is done is called the Chancery. Therefore, the Embassy is in the Chancery.
A consulate is similar to (but not the same as) a diplomatic office, but with focus on dealing with individual persons and businesses, as defined by the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
A consulate or consulate general is generally a representative of the embassy in locales outside of the capital city. The person in charge of a consulate or consulate-general is known as a consul or consul-general, respectively.
Similar services may also be provided at the embassy (to serve the region of the capital) in what is normally called a consular section.
