An A-Z List of African Embassies in the United States

If you're planning a trip to Africa, one of your first steps will be to determine whether or not you need a visa. Visa information changes frequently for many African countries and the only truly reliable source of information is your destination's embassy. Usually, you will be able to find all the information that you need on the embassy website, or by talking to an agent over the phone.

If you do require a visa, you will usually apply for it at the embassy.

Embassies also provide a variety of services for African expats living in America. In this article, we list the location and contact details for all African embassies in the United States. If a country doesn't have an embassy in the US, we have included the details for their Permanent Mission to the United Nations instead.
