Know Where the U.S. Embassies and Consulates Are Located

There are 294 U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. Before visiting another country, it is important that you research where the embassy is located in the country in which you are visiting. As a result of recent terror threats, the U.S. has shut down 21 diplomatic facilities worldwide. (Photo: REUTERS/Nir Elias)
