An embassy is an official office of a country's ambassador. The ambassador acts as the official representative of a country and carries out many diplomatic duties. Embassies and consulates are in the same location from time to time, and both offices handle the affairs of one country while in another country.

If you wish to address the ambassador or another part of the embassy staff, you must write a formal letter. This letter should include your personal details, requests and reasons for writing, and formal salutations, or it may not issue a response. A letter address is often different from a spoken address.
