Embassies & Consulates in the U.A.E.

Whether you are coming to Dubai as a tourist, business traveller or immigrant, I believe it is important to be in touch with your respective embassy/consulate as they can help immensely with information about the country, security issues, business councils, etc. even before you travel.

All embassies are located in Abu Dhabi, whereas consulates can be found in Dubai. The only exception to this rule is the United Kingdom, which has 2 embassies in the UAE, one each in both Abu Dhabi & Dubai.

Below, I've listed some of the embassies/consulates in the UAE
(sorry that I cannot mention all!).
