U.S. Consulate General Barcelona

About the Consulate General

The U.S. Consulate General Barcelona is responsible for a consular district composed of the Spanish regions of Catalonia, Aragon and the Principality of Andorra.  Established in 1797, it is one of the oldest U.S. consulates in the world.  On 1997, we celebrated the two hundred anniversary of the consulate general in Barcelona.

The Consul General is the representative of the government of the United States of America within the consular district.  The Consular Section offers services to American citizens.  The Public Diplomacy Section welcomes public and press inquiries about every aspect of the United States and works to foster mutual understanding through exchanges of persons and ideas and by administering cultural programs.  The Political and Economic Section follows important political and economic developments in the consular district and maintains regular contacts with local and regional government representatives, as well as with the Principality of Andorra.
