Consulates & Embassies

Foreign embassies and consulates are located in San José, the majority in the downtown area, while others can be found in upper scale neighborhoods of Rohrmoser, Escazú, Sabana and San Pedro.

The following is a contact guide and we suggest that you call ahead before visiting to obtain their exact location, direction and hours of attention to the public. The list will be continually updated and ask you to send us an email for any corrections of embassies that should be included in our list.
