When you have trouble going abroad, your classmates will think of the embassy as soon as possible, but how much do you know about embassies abroad? What can we do to find an embassy abroad?
What is the embassy? An embassy is a permanent diplomatic office of a country stationed in the capital of a country that has diplomatic relations. The ambassador’s primary responsibility is to represent the sending country and promote political relations between the two countries. The second is to promote economic, cultural, educational, scientific and technological, and military relations. The scope of the embassy’s responsibility extends to all regions in the country, and the consulate is only responsible for the area under its jurisdiction. Embassies are usually under the direct leadership of the government and the diplomatic service, while consulates are usually under the dual leadership of the foreign service and the embassy of the host country. Many countries have only embassies and no consulates in most countries. If there is no consulate or what level of consulate is set up, it mainly depends on the number of diasporas and consular services and the importance of the area in which they are located. For example, China has embassies and five consulates in the United States, responsible for consular business in their respective jurisdictions. In individual small countries, foreign countries only have consulates and consular officials.
