U.S. Consulate General in Istanbul
Several agencies of the United States Government that constitute the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul work as a team to promote relations between the American and Turkish government and people. They carry out American relations with Turkey, have an active public diplomacy program, provide consular services to American citizens and visa services to citizens of Turkey and other countries who wish to visit or who qualify to immigrate to the United States, and foster trade and investment between two countries. They work with their counterparts to protect our mutual political, economic, and security interests through various multilateral organizations. The American Mission is also devoted to helping American citizens and American organizations living/working in or visiting Turkey.
