    About The U.S. Embassy & Consulate in the UAE

    The U.S. Presence in the United Arab Emirates

    The United States has enjoyed warm relations with the UAE since 1971. The U.S. was the third country to establish formal diplomatic relations with the UAE and has had an ambassador resident in the UAE since 1974.

    The U.S. Presence in Abu Dhabi

    The new embassy compound is the third building housing the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi. The new building expresses strong, enduring relationship between the two countries.

    The U.S. Presence in Dubai

    On December 1, 1976, the United States opened an Embassy Branch Office in Dubai. The office was located in the Al Futtaim Building on Creek Road in Deira. In May 1981, the Embassy Branch Office moved to the World Trade Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road. On December 1, 1985, the Embassy Branch Office became a Consulate General.

    The Consulate General’s consular district includes Dubai and the five northern Emirates of Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al-Quwain, Ras al-Khaimah and Fujairah.

    The New Consulate Compound in Dubai

    In November 2011, the New Consulate Compound (NCC), located in Bur Dubai on a six-acre site adjacent to the Dubai Creek and the Consulates of Saudi Arabia and Qatar on land generously donated to the United States by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, was officially dedicated and opened.

    The NCC represents a significant commitment by the United States to a long-term presence in Dubai, and has allowed the Consulate General to increase the efficiency and accessibility of its services to the public, including assisting American citizens and visa services.
