Chicago, the third largest city in the United States and the largest in the midwestern region of the country, is home to 51 missions, the fourth-most after Washington, D.C., New York and Los Angeles.


Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States and is home to 42 missions.

Other cities with diplomatic missionsEdit

Many cities have only one or two consulates; these are often with Mexico (which has 50 offices in the United States), or Canada (which has 17).

Cities with Mexican consulates only (24)Edit

Due to the large number of Mexican immigrants in the United States, Mexico has 50 diplomatic missions in the United States, more than any country has with any other country. Many of these are smaller cities in the southwestern United States, including a number of border towns.

Countries without formal diplomatic missions to the United StatesEdit

Several countries do not have formal diplomatic missions accredited to the United States. Consular duties for each country, except Kiribati and non-UN members, are instead managed by their respective diplomatic missions to the United Nations in New York.
